Proceeds go to HealthLinks Foundation to provide financial support, education and community outreach services to promote healthy, active survivorship for cancer patients and their families.
Throughout my 5 yr survivorship, I have benefited from the HLC programs of therapeutic exercise and support and as you know HLC is where I have the journal writing group, but... I'm not a golfer! LOL The point is, HLC does great work for all survivors from athletes like Mark to ordinary people like me. Golfers' lives are touched by cancer like everyone else's and the tournament is a great way for golfers to enjoy a game in memory and celebration of Mark and support a great cause.
