Check your Hole Golf Day, August 4th, 2013

 

 

'Check Your Hole' Charity Golf Day was sell out success in 2013 with more than 100 players taking to the fairways at Pioneer Valley, Mirani.

'Check Your Hole' is a tongue in cheek day aimed at raising awareness and funds for men's health issues. It is not your typical charity golf day but an interactive event with health checks and information at each hole. Some of these include; blood pressure, diabetes screening, waist measurements, skin screening and the infamous wobbly club challenge at the sexual health hole! Men are generally less likely to get regular medical check ups, yet many of the chronic diseases we see claiming Australian lives can either be prevented or treated when detected early. 'Check Your Hole' Charity Golf Day is a timely reminder that looking after your health doesn't have to be difficult and that small changes can make a BIG difference.

While the message was a serious one, it was a fun and entertaining event and we raised money for a great cause.

This year we were raising funds and awareness for Baker IDI - renowned Australian Heart and Diabetes Research Institute. Baker IDI is on a mission to reduce death, disability and suffering from heart disease stroke and diabetes. With cardiovascular disease  the leading cause of death in Australia (50,000 lives lost every year) and one Australian dying every 10 minutes from heart attack or stroke... we think they are an organisation worth backing!

The winning team this year were the boys from D & T Hydraulics and Runners Up went to Whitsunday Anglican School. The Don Bradman Award (last place) went to Totally Workwear, who also took home Best Specimens on the Green!

A massive thank you to all our sponsors and those who generously donated prizes, the day would not be possible without your help!

If you missed out this year, don't despair. Check Your Hole will be back again next year in August 2014. We always welcome new players and sponsors.
