Golf for Life
Trinity Health Foundation held its annual Golf for Life Men’s Golf Tournament on Monday, August 14, 2023, at Souris Valley Golf Course.
A shotgun start kicked off the tournament, which featured 33 teams. Golfers also participated in a contest for longest putt, drive, and hole-in-one.
This year, a new element was introduced to the tournament called the Chopper Drop—a 50-50 raffle where golf balls were purchased for a chance to win up to $5,000. During the awards ceremony, a helicopter flew over the golf course, pouring the bucket of numbered balls out the window. The ball closest to the target won the cash prize, totaling $1,960.
Proceeds from the event totaled $33,623, benefiting the Trinity Health Cancer Exercise Rehab program, which provides clinical exercise and conditioning for cancer patients and survivors to help them gain strength and resilience. “The primary goals consist of helping individuals build muscle mass, muscle strength and endurance, cardio-respiratory capacity, flexibility, and improve functional ability,” said Wade McDowell, Director of Trinity Health’s Exercise Physiology Department.
The 2nd Annual Double D-Haw breast cancer fundraiser was held Friday, August 18th, at The Blue Rider Bar in downtown Minot.
All proceeds benefit the Trinity Health CancerCare Fund!
