What is the Cures Within Reach Longest Day of Golf?

A golf tournament, unlike any other.

Each year, 24-40 players golf from dawn til dusk - sometimes as many as 100 holes, each raising money to fund a repurposing clinical trial.  In support of this amazing effort, we secure a private course, and provide our players with refreshments, carts, prizes, and encouragement.  

Together, these players have created amazing impact, changing lives for patients with prostate cancer, pediatric brain cancer, autism, Alzheimers, and pediatric auto-immune disease. See below for updates on this funded research!

How does it work?

Registered players contribute or raise a minimum of $1,000, with many players raising $3-5K. On the day itself, these players enjoy open play on a private course from dawn til dusk. 

What project was funded in 2016?

In March 2016, the Cures Within Reach Young Professionals Board hosted the inaugural CureAccelerator™ Live!, a philanthropic pitch event where researchers from Chicago's top medical research institutions presented their innovative repurposing research plans to an audience of 128 participants who selected one winner to receive funding. The winning project, Dr. Havelka's "Saving Limbs: Helping Nature Do Its Magic," which addresses treatment for chronic limb-threatening ischemia (CLI), received proceeds from the event, which totaled $26,701, and also received proceeds from LDOG 2016 to completely fund the project's $50,000 budget.
