G-Mc's Fitness Homies Golf Tourney
Friday, 18 May 2018
Year after year, “G-Mc’s Fitness Homies with Extra Chromies” is a sellout success story. On Saturday May 12th at the Peninsula Lakes Golf Course, 216 golfers came out to support the non- profit organization and raise awareness for children and adults living with Down syndrome. The tournament sold out in just three weeks, almost doubling the turnout of last year’s event. The event held 18 holes of golf, welcome gift bags and a chance to win the Longest Drive Contest. The fundraiser also had a silent auction, 50/50 draw and raffle tables.
G-Mc’s Fitness Homies with Extra Chromies, was created by Kathy and Ron McPherson who asked Blair Stayzer, a personal trainer to train their son Gregory. At the time Stayzer never worked with a client living with Down syndrome, but the positive outgoing energy that Gregory McPherson had become a part of Stayzer’s life quickly.
This provided motivation to create the non-profit organization & golf tournament known as G-Mc’s Fitness Homies with Extra Chromies to raise awareness and create activities in the community for Down syndrome.
The Billyard Insurance Group is proud to be the presenting sponsor for the G-Mc’s Fitness Homies with Extra Chromies Golf Tournament. We are honoured to play a small part with a passionate group of people dedicated to providing support and services to help enrich the lives of children and adults living with Down syndrome. When the Saturday golf tournament came to an end, Billyard Insurance Group was overjoyed with the momentum that was gained, and has become dedicated yearly to help sponsor an event to remember for years to come.
