We’re taking on Cancer Council’s The Longest Day...

Hi guys,

 

On December 14th Joe, Alan, Oliver and myself are taking part in the Cancer Council event - “The Longest Day”. We will face the task of playing 72 holes of golf in one day. Not only will this be physically draining, but considering our golf games are not the highest of skill levels, it will be mentally draining.

 

The reason Oliver and myself are entering this event is to raise money to provide funds for research development in the fight against the disease, as our mother has fought against it twice.

 

It may seem like a day of just fun, golf and guy time, but we have set a team goal to raise $3,000 and have agreed to donate more of our own money according to our results on the day. The punishment for us as players:

 

1.     If at any point as individual players we score a +10 on a hole, that player will donate the value of their score. Eg. Player scores 10 = $10, 12 = $12.

2.     Any time a player 4 putts, that player will donate the amount of the teams collected putts for that hole.

3.     Any hole where the entire team fails to make the green before par, the team donates the value of the hole. Eg. Hole 18 - $18 each, Hole 9 - $9 each.

4.     Any player scores a hole-in-one, all players donate $100.

 

Any donations would contribute greatly to our team goal. We will be recording and posting live updates about the day as we go so it will be a day of laughter and tears.

 

Thank you to all of you who contribute. Let’s tee off a cancer free future!!
