Crusade for a Cure

August 27, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm at Maple Bluff Country Club

Welcome to the Crusade Fore a Cure!

 My name is Peggy Gierhart. I am the head girls golf coach at Edgewood High school. My assistant coach is Betsy Zadra. Nine years ago, Betsy and I both had (and still have) relatives and friends battling breast cancer.  We started a high school fundraiser golf tournament nine years ago at Maple Bluff CC to support breast cancer research.

The support has been overwhelming in the community and beyond. The girls love this day! They can wear pink and come together as one team to support a cause that is so near and dear to everyone. We have 20 high school teams represented. Many of the teams creatively fundraise separately before the event which is amazing!!  The teams share their separate fundraising stories and how cancer has affected someone they know. We have raised almost $70,000 in the past 8 years. We could never have done this without the hard work of these high school golfers!!

This year we will hold our 9th annual event on August 27.
