The ALS Association, Iowa Chapter
Our Annual Golf Classic is in memory of Michael R. Myers, an entrepreneur who dedicated his life to building and growing communities in Iowa. Mike was passionate about giving back to the community, and when he was diagnosed with ALS in 1996, this passion took the form of helping others struggling with this horrible disease. Though Mike passed away in 2006, his desire to support those battling ALS and support research to find a cure lives on through the Michael R Myers Memorial Legacy Social & Golf Classic.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
In the past 2 years, due to overwhelming kindness and generosity, our event raised $170,000 for the direct benefit of The ALS Association, Iowa Chapter. Our 2018 goal is to raise $125,000 via Sponsorships, Golf Foursomes, Silent Auction Sales, 50/50 Raffle Tickets, Mulligans, Hole Entertainment and the Infamous Ice Bucket Challenge.
To aid in our efforts to raise additional funds for The ALS Association, Iowa Chapter, The MRM Memorial Board introduces The Legacy Social: Mulligan Mixer. A casual evening inspired by the 20’s golf era.
The ALS Association is the only national not-for-profit health organization dedicated solely to the fight against ALS.
It covers all the bases - research, care services, public education, and advocacy - providing help and hope to those facing the disease. The Iowa Chapter serves this vision by raising funds to provide local care services and support national ALS research and advocacy efforts.
