Cancer unfortunately touches us all. Something James Fitzgerald is all too familiar with. After losing three loved ones to cancer, James decided to give his golf game a new meaning in their honour.
“I decided at the start of a golf season I would donate a certain amount for each birdie I got to cancer research,” says James.
A simple concept that has meant so much to James and changed the way he looks at getting a birdie.
“Each time I get a birdie I track it and I reflect upon the special people I’m honouring. It’s become a celebration of their life in a round of golf. I think of them when I mark my birdie and it brings me joy.”
After discussing his personal birdie challenge with his golfing partner, the two were inspired to start a grass roots program in support of CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.
All funds raised and donated to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation remain in Manitoba to support CancerCare’s internationally recognized team of health professionals who provide outstanding care for patients and their families. The Foundation shares CancerCare’s bold vision, “A world free of cancer” and the goal that no life is cut short by cancer, a complex set of more than 200 diseases.
“Bucks Fore Birdies can add a whole new meaning to your game of golf. We hope you’ll join us and make the pledge to help those touched by cancer here in Manitoba,” encourages James.
