The people at Pinnacle Golf asked if I would post the following announcement and I am happy to do so. Like most of us, I have several friends and family members who have suffered from breast cancer. I think the statistics are now 1 woman out of 8 will have it during her lifetime. Too many for sure! And fighting against it is something we should all be working towards. One way golfers can get involved is in participating in the annual Rally For A Cure Golf Tournament at your club or in your region. Pinnacle is asking for your participation in the Going the Distance Awards to increase awareness. Read on for entry information:
. . . .
From Pinnacle Golf: We’re looking for golfers who have “gone the distance” in the fight against breast cancer. The golf ball manufacturer has just announced the second annual Going the Distance Awards, a program that celebrates and honors golfers who are making an impact in battling this disease. Ten honorees will have a $10,000 donation made in their name to help fund critical breast cancer research, as well as receive a prize package from Pinnacle.
- Dedication to the fight against breast cancer demonstrating a personal passion and commitment to furthering the cause (e.g., volunteer, community advocate, medical practitioner)
- Impact on others’ lives or the community
- Strong tie to breast cancer (e.g., survivor or family/friend of survivor)
- Connection to, and passion for, golf
The program runs until March 31. Winners will be announced in May. A judging panel that includes representatives from Pinnacle, Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, a 2012 Going the Distance Honoree and the golf community will choose the final ten Going the Distance Award honorees. The $10,000 donation made in each honoree’s name to Susan G. Komen for the Cure will go toward life-saving breast cancer research at the national level.
