Golf To Defeat ALS Logo

Strength. Courage. Love.…and fun!

When Mike Rickey was diagnosed with ALS, his ability to golf was one of the first things ALS took from him. Golf to Defeat ALS was founded by the Rickey family in an effort to take it back, while bringing both fun and funding to individuals impacted by this terribly unfun disease.
