Golfing raises money for prostate cancer

The Amarillo based organization “Friends of Fogelberg” held its 1st Annual Golf Scramble on October 9, 2010 at Comanche Trail Golf Complex. Along with the Great Palo Duro Prostate Putting Relay on October 3, the group raised $2,500, benefitting the Harrington Cancer Center to battle prostate cancer. Legendary singer songwriter, Dan Fogelberg, died of prostate cancer in December 2007 at age 56 inspiring the organization of the group, Friends of Fogelberg. The group’s goals are to raise awareness and to urge men that early screening could save their lives. Organizers believe that the issue of prostate cancer’s time has come and it should be treated with the same urgency and attention that breast cancer receives. The Susan G. Komen Foundation is a great model for Friends of Fogelberg They have done wonderful work at Komen. They “Think Pink.” At Friends of Fogelberg, we “DO BLUE.”

The Great Palo Duro Prostate Putting Relay

Mission accomplished. 23 miles around the track at Caprock High School in Amarillo Texas to raise money for the Harrington Cancer Center by the Friends of Fogelberg. Thank you for all those who came out today to help.

Joe Ed Coffman putts the first 4 miles

Joe Ed Coffman, founder of the Friends of Fogelberg movement,  is out on the track this morning. When I left him, he finally got a relief putter and had completed 4 miles since 8:05am.

Head out there an if you don’t have a putter, he has an extra one. The one designated ball will do 23 miles around the track, the distance from Palo Duro Canyon gates to Comanche Trail golf course.


There is a basket full of blue balls to putt around the track on your own so you can also be a part to raise money for the Harrington Cancer Center. $5 donation or more is a putt in the name of a loved one you can write on list of those affected by Prostate Cancer. We will post those names on the blog after the event. Thank you for your support.
