The PGA of Canada’s association with Prostate Cancer Canada supports awareness and helps generate much needed financial support. Locally, the PGA of Canada Atlantic donated money from a fundraiser held in conjunction with the PGA Annual Awards Gala.
PGA of Canada Atlantic Executive Director Lindon Garron, personally affected by the disease, is pleased to have played a role in initiating the relationship between the PGA and Prostate Cancer Canada.
Female PGA Members point out that although prostate cancer affects males, females also are also directly affected when their husbands, fathers, brothers, grandfathers, etc. are diagnosed with the disease.
