Anaheim Ducks Star Raises Funds at Monarch Beach Golf Links to Support CureDuchenne’s Community Programs and Investments into Lifesaving Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Research
WHAT: Hosted by Paige & Ryan Getzlaf, captain of the Anaheim Ducks and Stanley Cup champion, the 10th Annual “Getzlaf Golf Shootout” will be held on Saturday, September 11 at the Monarch Beach Golf Links in support of CureDuchenne, a leading global nonprofit focused on finding and funding a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
The charity golf event brings together local athletes, celebrities and community leaders to raise funds for CureDuchenne’s community programs and investments into lifesaving Duchenne muscular dystrophy research to improve the lives of the Duchenne boys, young men and their families.
The rare disease affects approximately 1 in 3,500 male births worldwide–Boys are usually diagnosed around 5 years of age, lose the ability to walk by their mid-teens and most boys with Duchenne don’t survive past their mid-20’s.
Off the ice, Getzlaf spends a great deal of his time giving back to the community — he and his wife, Paige, take an active role in supporting CureDuchenne. For more information on the event and sponsorship opportunities visit cureduchenne.org/getzlaf-golf.
