World Youth Day: Puttin’ for Poland Golf Scramble

Sun, 10/12/2014 (All day)

Hosted by SWAFFY (Saints Wendel and Francis For Youth) to raise funds for the World Youth Day pilgrimage to Poland in July of 2016. All proceeds raised at this event will benefit 13 young adults scheduled to participate in World Youth Day 2016. This international event attracted approximately 3 million Catholics – including the pope - to Brazil in 2013, and expectations are similar for young people from almost every country coming together in Poland. We hope this experience will renew the faith of our young people, but especially inspire them to move beyond the fears of diversity and strengthen their confidence as leaders today. Learn more about the event at www.worldyouthday.com. The participating youth are working very hard to raise funds for this pilgrimage. The cost is approximately $3,600 per person which includes WYD fees, flights, land transportation, hotel, food, and travel insurance. All expenses combined, we need to raise almost $50,000. If you are interested or have questions, please contact Kim Wassmer 781-0334, Dena Embrey 430-1596, Sherie Cooley 963-3733 or email swaffy4wyd@gmail.com.

Walk to Defeat ALS

Tropicana Evansville, 421 NW Riverside Dr, Evansville, IN 47708

More than just a few-mile trek, the Walk to Defeat ALS® is an opportunity to bring hope to people living with ALS, to raise money for a cure, and to come together for something you care about. The Walk to Defeat ALS® is The ALS Association’s biggest annual event, which raises funds that allow our local chapters to sustain care services and support research for much of the next year.

Please visit www.alsaindiana.org to register your walk team TODAY and support the fight to defeat ALS!

Check-in starts at 10:30 a.m., with the Walk beginning at 12 p.m.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Eventually, people with ALS lose the ability to initiate and control muscle movement, which often leads to total paralysis and death within two to five years of diagnosis. For unknown reasons, veterans are twice as likely to develop ALS as the general population. There is no cure, and only one drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) modestly extends survival.
