RBC Golf Challenge for MS - In 20 years, this unique golf event has raised $353,935 to end multiple sclerosis: VIDEO

On Monday, the 20th RBC Golf Challenge for MS was held; 75 golfers took over the greens at the Ch√Ęteau Bromont, Royal Bromont and Parcours du Vieux Village golf clubs. The event's participants played 100 holes or 250 strokes of golf during the day and donated $353,935 to the MS Society to end multiple sclerosis, a typically Canadian disease.

"Thanks to the great generosity of our avid golfers and donors, this initiative has raised nearly $4.5 million since its inception in 1996. The funds are used to support MS research and develop services for the 20,000 families in Quebec who live with MS," noted Louis Adam, Executive Director of the MS Society's Quebec Division.

The comedy duo Dominic et Martin, spokesmen for the RBC Golf Challenge for MS for the past six years, were pleased to take part in the event. "For the 100,000 Canadians with multiple sclerosis, every day is a challenge. To support them, the golfers who participate in this event face the challenge of playing 100 holes or 250 strokes of golf in a single day! They are motivated by many things, but their goal is the same: discover the cause and cure for multiple sclerosis."

The resounding success is largely attributable to the outstanding support of RBC's Wealth Management group, the main sponsor of the RBC Golf Challenge for MS. This partner's business reputation and commitment have certainly helped to promote the cause. The 20th RBC Golf Challenge for MS also received support from two other leaders in their respective fields: Jean Coutu and Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton.
