    May 20th kicks off the beginning of our 2014 Golfathon for ALS at Green Acres Golf Course. PGA of BC Class A Apprentice, Derek Whipple will be golfing from sunrise to sunset to raise funds and awareness for those affected by ALS.

  • Steve Darling contiunes his support of the PGA of BC Goflathon for ALS.  Proceeds from this event go patient services provided through the ALS Society of BC..

    With 2,600 pieces of medical equipment our Equipment Loan Program is designed to help people cope with the daily challenges of decreasing mobility and independence, through obtaining basic and essential assistive equipment. This includes mobility equipment, lift equipment, beds & accessories, communication devices, and bathroom aids, if needed. All equipment loaned is available at no charge to registered ALS patient members.

  • “On behalf of the Association, I am extremely excited for the PGA of BC’s ninth year of participation with Golfathon for ALS, benefiting the ALS Society of BC patient services. In our eight years of involvement, the efforts of our members have generated over $869,000 and assisted the over 2,800 individuals in British Columbia whom are fighting this deadly disease. I am confident that with the continued support of our members, 2014 will be the year where the program will eclipse the $1 million mark.”
