Angels Making a Difference / St. Jude's Children's Hospital

Angels Making A Difference assists in the support of our local Oregon cancer patients and families with a vast array of resources. It can be a very overwhelming change to their lives with a diagnosis of cancer so we try to ease those burdens in the areas that help might be needed, whether it be resources, information, financial or emotional support. The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay. Note: Sunset Grove Golf Club participants are hiking for these two causes. At time of fulfillment, the pledger can choose how to split pledged funds between the two causes.

That's what my lovely wife, Emily, told me today. And I couldn't agree with her more.

The Halfway Hike

Fifty-four holes of golf golf ball!!! Yes, I played 3 rounds in a little under 6 hours last Friday morning with a single Callaway HX Hot golf ball.

The 2 cent Pledge

My 5 year-old son, Chase, has been going to the driving range and putting green with me for about 2 years now off and on.

A 2 Hour Hike (give or take an hour and a half)

Instead of hitting the links today, I decided to hit the pavement in order to A.) Loose a little weight, B.) Get used to the heat (It's Oregon so June 25th could bring ANYTHING), C.) Garner some pl

Handing out Cards before I fill some out

Shortly after setting the lofty goal to raise $5000 through my hike on June 25th, I tried to do some math as far as how many people I would need to pledge certain amounts to reach that goal.

Changing Directions

I was standing over a putt for an 8 on the 7th hole today frustrated by being unable to master the blustery weather of the evening.
