The Longest Day Epic Challenge
SEVENTY TWO holes, 20 miles, 15 hours and over 350 golf shots in a single day – competing against clubs nationwide in The Longest Day.
Last year saw over 3,000 teams cross the UK sign up to play 72 holes of golf in just one day, and raise £1.5 million for people affected by cancer.
This year the aim is to smash that total and raise even more money to help Macmillian continue to support people affected by cancer, from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond, ensuring no one faces cancer alone.
Which is why twenty barking/barmy golfers are teeing off at 4.30am on 29th July 2017 at Wimbledon Park Golf Club, and taking on this epic challenge.
There are now an estimated 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK. This number has grown by an extra 400,000 people in the last five years. It is projected to rise to 4 million people in the year 2030.
Fifteen hours spent trudging around a golf course on repeat enduring blisters and backache is frankly small change compared to what this disease brings.
Life is life. Everybody dies. But not everybody lives.
I hope you’ll support us along the way.
