Longest Day of Golf 2017
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 will be funded in 2017?
We are pleased to announce that two repurposing research projects have been conditionally selected for the Longest Day of Golf! Thank you to everyone who helped in the selection process.
Funds raised through the LDOG will be divided between:
Repurposing a Cancer Drug to Treat a Rare Pediatric Liver Disease - Dr. Evan Nadler; Children's National Health System, Washington, DC
Low Level Laser Therapy for Prevention of Oral Mucositis in Pediatric Cancer Patients - Dr. Ihab Suwwan; The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Canada
Additional support will be provided by a Cures Within Reach funder to supplement all donations. You'll have twice the patient impact this year!
Also, joining us on the course this year is Alex Moyer, former Miami Dolphins linebacker and founder of CA Gamechangers! CAG is a non-profit organization created to help young student-athletes maximize their academic and athletic experiences and facilitate life transitions to ensure success in life beyond sports. LDOG donations in honor of Alex will be split 50/50 between Cures Within Reach and CA Gamechangers.
