Dave, John and Sarah plan to undertake a massive challenge - 100 holes of golf in one day. Mind you, this is kind of a big deal for your average Joe, but these three are FAR from average. We could list their 'elite athlete' accolades, but there's just not enough space in this text box.
Their most notable inspiration for participating in Golf Fights Cancer's fundraiser is Dave's current battle with stage IV glioblastoma, an aggressive type of brain cancer. After being diagnosed in October, Dave has been fighting a tough battle alongside his parents, his two siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, Grandfather, Sarah, and countless friends. Despite continuing chemo and bi-weekly immunotherapy infusions, Dave has remained strong and is ready to take on this challenge but can’t do it on his own. So Dave is teaming up with the guy that has had TWO hip replacements and the girl with a record number of mulligans. Perfect team, right? We think so.
Sarah and John’s story began at Sports Illustrated and GOLF on the Ad Sales team. When Dave got a job at Arnold on the Titleist account, the three were linked through business, friendship, as well as Sarah and Dave’s relationship. After hearing of Dave’s diagnosis, JC connected Dave and Sarah to Golf Fights Cancer and now they’re taking this on together!
On June 17, our brave souls at ages 25 and 52 are sure to plod along with great purpose. It's safe to say that they won't be the first team in the clubhouse that day, but they are definitely the team that wins the award for inspiration, bravery and humor.
100% of their proceeds will go towards Glioblastoma research at Dana Farber and the neuro ICU at Hartford Hospital.
Thank you, in advance, for supporting the cause! Dave’s family and friends have been an amazing support through all of this and we’re excited to finally find a way to give back to the fight against this horrible disease.
