June 10: 3th Annual Golf Tournament, Tee Off for ALS in Nashville Will Raise Money To Fight ALS


 

On Monday, June 10th, The ALS Association Tennessee Chapter will hold the 13th Annual Tee Off for ALS golf tournament. The tournament will take place at Vanderbilt Legends Club in Franklin and will be hosted by longtime WSMV News 4 Sportscaster, Rudy Kalis.

The day will be filled with a spirited round of golf, including lunch, dinner and drinks, plus prizes, and a silent auction with outstanding items - all to support those battling ALS.

"Having lost a dear friend to ALS, this golf event means the world to me because the proceeds will help fight and find a cure for this terrible disease. It will also bring help and comfort to those families having to take care of loved ones battling for their lives," said Rudy Kalis.

ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Eventually, people with ALS lose the ability to initiate and control muscle movement, which often leads to total paralysis and death within two to five years of diagnosis. For unknown reasons, NFL players are four times as likely to develop ALS and veterans are twice as likely to develop ALS as the general population.

The simple fact is, ALS can strike anyone, anytime.
