Inspiring Golfers Who Make a Difference

Do you know any golfer who has “gone the distance” in the fight against breast cancer? 

Pinnacle Golf has just launched the second annual Going the Distance Awards, a program that celebrates and honors golfers who are making an impact in battling this disease. Ten honorees will have a US $10,000.00 donation made in their name to help fund critical breast cancer research, as well as receive a prize package from Pinnacle.

Anyone can nominate a golfer who inspires them by sharing their story at or

Honorees will be determined based on four key criteria:

·      Dedication to the fight against breast cancer demonstrating a personal passion and
       commitment to furthering the cause (e.g., volunteer, community advocate, medical practitioner
·      Impact on others’ lives or the community
·      Strong tie to breast cancer (e.g., survivor or family/friend of survivor)
·      Connection to, and passion for, golf 

The program runs until March 30, 2013. Winners will be announced in May to coincide with Mother’s Day. A judging panel that includes representatives from Pinnacle, Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, and the golf community will choose the final ten Going the Distance Award honorees. The $10,000 donation made in each honoree’s name to Susan G. Komen for the Cure will go toward life-saving breast cancer research at the national level.
