THE STORY:

A few years ago, I made a goal to one day run in the Boston Marathon.  I knew if I didn't qualify, I would run for something I believed in.  

I first met Dave Hovey when he started working on the Titleist account at Arnold.  I was working at Titleist and Dave was one of the marketing managers for the Titleist account.  Being an avid golfer, Dave immediately fit in with the Titleist team and we quickly sparked a friendship over our connection to the game.  Many of our conversations started with what courses he played that weekend, future golf trips he was taking, what he was working on in his game, or what new trinket he was hoping to snag from Titleist.  

In October 2015, Dave was diagnosed with Stage IV Glioblastoma. The type of cancer he was diagnosed with is a very rare and uncommon form of brain cancer, which unfortunately means that the funding and research is limited.  As I continued to learn more about his diagnosis, I was always overwhelmed by his positive attitude and drive to see the good in each situation.  Even while he was recovering from treatment and surgeries, he continued to want to help and do more.  

A few months after his diagnosis, I learned about his involvement with Golf Fights Cancer - a non-profit organization that was founded because of the personal connections we all have to cancer.  GFC is committed to harnessing the collective fundraising power of the entire golf community; making it easy for golfers to give back and making donations that make tangible differences in the fight against cancer. 

Not only was it my personal connection to Dave (and other close family friends who have battled cancer) but it was my passion for the golf industry and helping others that made this fundraising initiative what I run for.  In 2017, I will run for something I believe in.

The CrushTour 11 team is asking for your help to keep the research projects and advancements well-funded.  With this money, we're hoping to raise awareness and help present more treatment options to patients. 

Thank you for your support!
