THE STORY:

This July 4, the world will celebrate the 75th anniversary of Lou Gehrig’s, famous farewell speech. Lou Gehrig suffered from a disease called ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), a degenerative disease that slowly erodes the connections between motor neurons and the muscles in the body, essentially locking a person in their own body in the worst case scenarios.

In order to raise funds to contribute to the research for ALS I am going to be playing 75 holes of golf straight this July 4th. Starting in the morning i will play five-18 hole courses throughout the weekend, which will amount to around 30-40 hours of circulative hours of golf, and who knows how many lost balls.

My motivation to do this events comes from seeing first-hand what kind of impact this kind of disease can have on someones life. My grandfather has been onset with Parkinsons for the last twenty years, and it is heart-breaking for me to hear tales of how he provided for my mother and grandmother through hard times and having his reward being confined to a chair all day because he cannot stand up without assistance.
