“On behalf of the Association, I am extremely proud of the PGA of BC’s involvement with the Golfathon for ALS, benefiting the ALS Society of BC patient services,” says Donald Miyazaki, Executive Director of the PGA of BC. “Throughout our years of participation, the efforts of countless Golf Professionals and Volunteers have helped raise over $2.3 million. The program has assisted tens of thousands of individuals throughout British Columbia affected by this deadly disease. I am confident that with the continued support of our members, 2022 will be yet another successful PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS.”
“Golf is a sport I’m passionate about and ALS is a cause close to my heart,” says Jay Janower, Sports Anchor/Reporter, Global News BC. “My friend’s mom battled ALS so raising funds for patient services is near to my heart. It’s the reason I welcome the opportunity to become a part of the hugely successful PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS as its Ambassador.”
Proceeds from the Golfathon for ALS provide crucial support services to ALS patients and their families, friends, and caregivers.
