TPC of Myrtle Beach is hosting a Rally for the Cure® Golf Tournament on October 20, 2013. Rally for the Cure is a grass roots program that was created to empower people to take action in the fight against breast cancer by educating women about the disease and reminding them to get their annual breast cancer screening to ensure early detection through volunteer organized golf, tennis and social events. More than 2 million people have participated in Rally events across the nation since its inception in 1996.

 TPC of Myrtle Beach welcomes golfers to register for the Rally event and invites the public to take part. The day will begin with a shotgun start at 11:00 am. There will be food and beverages on course as well as many fun prizes, including a prize for the best dressed team! Payment will be due at the time of registration. The deadline to register is Sunday, October 13 (please call or drop by the Pro Shop to register). Prizes will be awarded to the winner of the event and each participant will receive a goody bag with important breast health information and other Rally items plus a subscription to a select Condé Nast magazine such as SELF, Golf Digest and Bon Appétit.

“We are proud to host a Rally for the Cure event. The event is a fun way for us to bring together our members and the community to support an important cause while playing a sport they are passionate about,” states Casey Cook, Head Professional at TPC of Myrtle Beach.

Since its start in 1996, the Rally program has touched over 2 million people with the important message that early detection saves lives. In addition to mobilizing people behind the promise to end breast cancer, Rally events have generated over $70 million for Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.

“The success of Rally is attributed to volunteer ambassadors like, TPC of Myrtle Beach owners Danny Young and Chip Smith who have said ‘Yes we can have a Rally at our club’. It is their enthusiasm, energy and support we value in our commitment to support Susan G. Komen,” says Diane Perillo, Program Manager, Rally for the Cure.

Since 1996 Komen has received over $70 million from fundraising activities at Rally events to help fund life-saving breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment programs. Rally for the Cure® is run by Condé Nast and is based in Wilton, Connecticut.
