For pioneering dementia work like ours it can be really challenging to get the support you need to make your social dream a reality. However, when you get support from two extremely influential people in the golfing world – it truly is priceless. Thanks a million – you’re helping us keep golf in people’s lives – even when dementia tries to take it away from them.
Here’s a bit more information about the fantastic fundraiser that Andrew & Paul are doing on our behalf in September.
Paul Dunstan, and Andrew Murray will celebrate a year to go for the 2018 Ryder Cup by running from European Tour Headquarters at Wentworth, to Le Golf National in Paris, home to the 2018 Ryder Cup.
In addition to running over a marathon every day for seven days they will also play a different format of golf each day.
All money raised will help support the excellent work Golf In Society are undertaking – https://golfinsociety.com/about/
Golf In Society are working with Golf and Health, leading Universities and golf clubs along with fantastic volunteers to help those with mental ill-health, for example dementia and Parkinson’s disease to play golf and to research it’s benefits, as well as looking at ways to develop the program further.
All money raised will go directly to support Golf In Society with their golf and dementia/mental ill-health projects, and all those donating will be contributing to these fantastic projects as well as having the chance to win some money can’t buy prizes.
When you see the enjoyment our golf sessions bring to people’s lives – it makes you realise that we cannot let dementia get in the way of doing the things that spark them back to life…
