100 HOLE HIKE FOR BANDON COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTER
Posted on Sunday, June 10 2012 09:16:52 PM in News by Akbar Chisti
The 100 Hole Hike marathon is a national-network of golf marathons where participants plan to walk 100 or more holes of golf in one day in order to raise money for various worthwhile charitable causes.
On June 28th, 2012, a group of SEAMUS golfers will be walking to raise funds and awareness for the Bandon Community Health Center at The Highlands in Gearhart, Oregon, a walking-only, fun to play golf facility.
Why this cause? One of the walkers in this group, Ali Chisti and brother to SEAMUS Co-Founder, Akbar Chisti, worked his medical rotation in Bandon and learned the potential for help we can give to this rural community. In the fall, Ali will head to Harvard to study public health with the goal of helping such rural communities. We love the people that live in the Bandon Community, the place that some of them work, and look forward to this unique fundraising opportunity to provide funds that may assist in improving the accessibility of much needed healthcare in the area.
Please take the time to check out or pledge for this cause here. If you are at all interested in joining the group, please do not hesitate to write to Akbar at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can sign you up! Caddies welcome, accommodations can be arranged, and of course all participants completing the hike at The Highlands on this day will receive a custom SEAMUS golf club cover.
