Golfers tee off for charity

Gastrointestinal Society’s annual Golf Marathon held earlier this month at Northview Golf Course.

More than 20 golfers hit the green for the Gastrointestinal Society’s annual Golf Marathon earlier this month.

Doctors, patients, community members and supporters of the society teed off at Northview Golf and Country Club in Surrey Oct. 5, raising $25,000 to support the GI Society’s essential programs to help individuals with GI and liver conditions.

Unlike traditional golf tournaments, the 22 participants completed as many rounds as they choose to, beginning at 8 a.m. with some golfers swinging until dusk.
