I chose the Els for Autism Foundation as the charity for my participation in the 100 Hole Hike. Autism touches many people today-- statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identify around 1 in 68 American children as on the autism spectrum–a ten-fold increase in prevalence in 40 years. Both of my sisters have children diagnosed in the autism spectrum. My niece Isabel is a delightful 12 year old, very engaged in sports, motor vehicles and technology. My nephew Ian, 17 enthusiastically embraces the dramatic arts and athletics, and keeps the family entertained with his video productions and music. Both kids are so sweet, smart and curious. Please help me raise funds for Autism by supporting my efforts in this 100 hole hike. Scott

Els for Autism

The Els for Autism Foundation was established in 2009 by Ernie and Liezl Els to focus on the issue of autism. For the last three years the world class pro golfer and his wife have devoted their efforts to a catalytic philanthropic project - The Els Center of Excellence. The Foundation has launched a capital campaign to raise $30 million to finance the facility; the Els' have committed $6 million of their own money.

H Day approaches...

Well, we are getting closer to H Day, the support is still building, both financially and in spirit.

thanks for the support

I want to thank everyone who has offered their financial support to date, and I especially appreciate the messages that accompany the commitment.

time is ticking

I have less than 3 weeks to get in hiking shape, this past memorial weekend was dedicated to enjoying friends and family, not adding distance to my hiking.

gearing up

I decided I had better start training for this hike, since when I play, I usually ride in a cart, with the Bose playing off Pandora and the cooler full of Coors lights-- not exactly cross-fit mater
