Golf Fore the Cure presented by Subaru is celebrating 10 years of increasing ladies participation in golf while raising funds for breast cancer research and support programs in Canada.  With the completion of the 2013 season, Golf Canada is proud to announce that Golf Fore the Cure has raised over $5.1 million towards ending the fight against breast cancer.

“It is extremely satisfying to see the success of this program considering in year one we had under 30 sites participating” explained Jeff Thompson, Golf Canada’s Chief Sport Officer. “The growth has been outstanding and all the women who have participated and contributed to the success should feel very proud”.

Throughout the program’s 10 years, Golf Fore the Cure has donated its fundraising sum to the Canadian Cancer Society as well as the Québec Breast Cancer Foundation.

“We are absolutely delighted to partner with Golf Canada on Golf Fore the Cure. This wonderful event brings together so many passionate women to relax playing golf while at the same time raising significant funds which have such a tremendous impact against breast cancer” says Pamela Fralick, President and CEO of the Canadian Cancer Society. “We are extremely grateful to everyone who takes part in Golf Fore the Cure”.

The support from partners continues to fuel the program towards its goal of growing participation and fighting breast cancer. Subaru Canada, presenting partner for the past seven years, has been a primary reason for the success of Golf Fore the Cure by providing the backing and support needed to grow the program.

Over 100,000 individuals have participated in a Golf Fore the Cure event across the country in the past 10 years. Their efforts, along with the contributions from each donor are also to thank for the continued success and growth of the program.

Lastly, the commitment of Golf Fore the Cure presented by Subaru ambassadors Celine Dion, Stephanie Sherlock, Alena Sharp, Trish Stratus and Evanka Osmak has been a major source of support and recognition for the program and its cause.

Registration opens to the public, free of charge, on Feb. 1st.
