THE STORY:

Merion Golf Club wrote -

Merion Golf Club’s Green Department is in the final stages of preparations for the U.S. Open taking place June 10th through the 16th.  We are working long hard hours to ensure a successful Championship. Upon the tragedy in Oklahoma, Merion’s staff wanted to find a way to help the communities affected by this terrible event.  Merion is located on a relatively small piece of property. To limit wear on the golf course our employees walk as a means of transportation during the majority of the jobs as opposed to utilizing carts.  On a given day many of our employees will walk well over 10 miles to get the job done.  During the week prior to the championship our efforts will be at a maximum and our employees are motivated to work even harder for a great cause.  Our staff will be wearing pedometers during the week of June 2nd to June 8th.  We are asking you for an initial donation with an incentive pledge for every 500 miles we walk (example: $50 dollars initial, with another $50 dollar promise if we break 500 miles, or and aditional $100 if we break 1000 miles). This website will be updated daily during that week so you can track our progress.  Each day we will post our total miles, as well as the days top walker and overall leader.  We are estimating between one to two thousand miles walked that week. Thank you very much for your generous donation.

Week's total through Wednesday: 1348.5 miles

Wednesday's Total miles: 393.41 miles

Wednesday's top walker: Blair Somerville, 19.1 miles

Overall leader: Patrick Douglas: 63.64 miles

We're shooting for 500 today! Already walked the distance from Philly to Moore Ok, let's see if we can make it back!
