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.

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 support of CA Gamechangers will be split 50/50 between Cures Within Reach and CA Gamechangers.

What projects will be funded in 2017?

Funds raised in honor of Wendell Davis/CA Gamechangers through the LDOG will be divided between:

For Cures Within Reach:

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

For CA Gamechangers:

Chicago Hope Academy (CHA) is a coed non-denominational college and life preparatory high school dedicated to nurturing and challenging the whole person - body, mind and spirit. CHA offers a challenging preparatory curriculum, gifted teachers who encourage and mentor students, small class sizes (average of 12 students per class), and solid athletic programs that teach the value of teamwork, discipline, sacrifice, sportsmanship and preservation. 

Partnering with CAG will result in identifying and financially assisting young student athletes to attend this school along with providing specific programing for student athletes at the school.

Hoops Avenue Athletics, HAA Elite’s program has consistently prepared some of the best basketball players in the Mid-West through innovative clinics, one on one coaching, impactful training camps, and mentorship. It noticed a dire need for mentorship within the community of Evanston and its surrounding areas for young men. To that end, HAA Elite prides itself on teaching not only skills needed for the game, but also the lessons needed for life, character development, leadership accountability and team work. Its vision is to relentlessly guide the community’s youth toward success with the ultimate goal being to ensure that kids win both on and off the court.

Partnering with CAG will impact game time programming by addressing academic and social skills support and postgame programming by engaging collegiate athletes in mentorship.
