Alena Sharp, Canada’s No. 2 ranked golfer on the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings, conducted a Golf Fore the Cure presented by Subaru clinic on Tuesday at the Seymour Golf & Country Club in North Vancouver, just 20 kilometres from the Vancouver Golf Club—site of this year’s CP Women’s Open.
Sharp, one of three program ambassadors, was on hand to provide instruction to over 50 female members of Seymour Golf & Country Club. The Hamilton, Ont., native has backed Golf Fore the Cure presented by Subaru since 2011—supporting the program’s objective of increasing women’s participation in golf while raising money to fight breast cancer.
Golf Fore the Cure presented by Subaru was created in 2003 by Golf Canada – the National Sport Organization – to drive women’s participation in the game of golf with the use of fun, non-intimidating activities. Through a unique partnership structure with the Canadian Cancer Society (and Québec Breast Cancer Foundation), the program has women across the country participating in golf activities and raising money and awareness for a cause close to Canadian hearts – the fight against breast cancer.
With the help of volunteers across the country, the program has welcomed more than 100,000 women to the game of golf. These women have been able to raise over $5.1 million towards the fight against breast cancer.
Golf Canada’s Golf Fore the Cure program is proudly sponsored by presenting partner, Subaru. For more information on Golf Fore the Cure, visit golfforethecure.ca
