Longest Day of Golf 2018


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.

How does it work?

Registered players contribute or raise a minimum of $1,000, with many players raising $3-5K. We are happy to help you reach your fundraising minimum by creating your personal donation web page & providing you with anything you may need, including: example emails, informative PDFs, and social media posts.


On the day itself, these players enjoy open play on a private, LDOG-players ONLY course from dawn til dusk. This year, we'll return to Ravina Green in Riverwoods, IL, joined by Women In Bio! Women In Bio is an organization of professionals committed to promoting careers, leadership, and entrepreneurship of women in the life sciences.



What projects will be funded in 2018?

We are pleased to announce that funds raised will support cancer repurposing research.

One project to be funded:

Repurposing Old Drugs as New Therapies for Metastatic Thyroid Cancer - Paul Swiecicki, MD, University of Michigan

There currently are limited effective therapies for metastatic thyroid cancer, resulting in a poor prognosis for many patients. Based on work in other types of cancer, the research team proposes a clinical trial testing the repurposed drugs sirolimus and cyclophosphamide as an effective treatment combination in metastatic thyroid cancer.

Your support is improving lives for these specific patients while adding momentum to a patient-centered research approach.
