If spending a leisurely morning on the golf course, hanging out with friends, could help people battling a baffling disease, would you join in? If you’re a golf hound  and you’re available this Saturday morning, have we got the event for you!

The 3rd Annual Tee Off Fore Huntington’s Disease is happening this Saturday, August 26, at Spring Creek Country Club in Harrisburg. Registration for this 4-person scramble is at 7 AM, shotgun start at 8 AM. Your team entry fee ($320) includes 18 holes, a riding cart and lunch. There are awards for the winning team, pin prizes, and raffle tickets for a Jared Allen, Chicago Bears autographed jersey available too.

Huntington’s Disease is a cruel enemy. It has been described as a combination of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s. It is an inherited disorder which causes the breakdown of brain cells. This results in “physical, mental and behavioral decline” which usually manifests itself in a person’s 30s or 40s, but can also appear in children.

The long list of physical and behavioral changes is positively unnerving, with clinical depression being one of the most prevalent complications of this disease. There are medications to help manage the symptoms of the disease for a time, but there is no cure and eventually it is fatal.

If you or someone you know needs help and support in dealing with this disease please call 1-800-345-HDSA (4372) or connect with the local chapter (Huntington’s Disease Society of America/South Dakota) online and on Facebook.
