THE STORY:

It seems like 2004 Boston Marathon was just yesterday when two friends who worked in the golf business ran a marathon - and in doing so helped launch Golf Fights Cancer.  Jay Monahan and I were high-fiving each other with each and every donation that came in to our fledgling little group.  We were beyond thrilled to collectively raise just under $40,000.  Who knew what we were starting!

Fast forward a dozen plus years and Golf Fights Cancer has grown to the point where we have the power to raise a million dollars in a single year!  Jay has retired from marathoning to focus on his career, among other things… (seems to be going okay for him)… but me, I channel my inner Forrest Gump each year and keep up the annual training ritual and Patriots Day slog. 

Knowing all the good that comes out of Golf Fights Cancer and all the amazing community of people involved, I am always unabashed in my fundraising asks, as I know howe efficient we are and have seen the incredible impact of the funds raised. Your generosity has helped raise over $5.5 Million dollars to date!  Check out where your money has gone over time: http://golffightscancer.org/our-grant-history/ and my promise to you is that we will continue to fund projects that make immediate and tangible differences in the fight against cancer. 

Thanks for your support of my fundraising and for being part of my Boston Marathon journey.  The fundraising and the sense of community involved with my run is far and away the best part of the marathon experience each year.  I am incredibly grateful for the support that I get each year and am blown away by the generosity of so many.  

Thank you for being actively involved with Golf Fights Cancer and for helping me to win the day.

Brian
