 DICK’S Sporting Goods Open to Partner with the ALS Association

Walk to Defeat ALS added to Tournament Schedule

 

(VESTAL, NY)-  The DICK’S Sporting Goods Open is proud to announce a new partnership with the ALS Association Upstate New York Chapter.  Adding to our spectacular week-long series of events, A Walk to Defeat ALS will take place on Sunday July 10th, 2016.  The completion of the walk will coincide with the Final Round of the 2016 DICK’S Sporting Goods Open.   

 

“We are thrilled to offer the ALS Association the opportunity to utilize our PGA TOUR Champions Event to springboard their annual walk,” said John Karedes, Tournament Director.  “Broome County Community Charities is proud to support fundraising to cure this vicious disease,” added Karedes.  

 

“Partnering with the DICK’S Sporting Good Open is a fantastic opportunity for The ALS Association Upstate New York Chapter to amplify our ability to support the needs of our local families in Central New York and the Southern Tier,” added Elizabeth Krisanda, Executive Director of The ALS Association Upstate New York Chapter.

 

Proceeds from the Walk will benefit the ALS Association Upstate New York Chapter, which focuses primarily on helping local patients and families live with ALS. The Walk to Defeat ALS is the ALS Association’s biggest annual event, which raises funds that allow local chapters to sustain care services and support research for much of the next year.
