Join RSDSA for our Longest Day of Golf Fundraiser

RSDSA Longest Day of Golf CRPSHave you heard? RSDSA’s 2019 Longest Day of Golf (LDOG) event will take place on Sunday, September 30th!

LDOG is a one-day event to raise funds for RSDSA and bring awareness to complex regional pain syndrome best known as CRPS. This year, we will once again partner with prolific golfer and CRPS advocate, Josh Rosen. Rosen, who does not have the syndrome, decided to participate after learning about both our organization and CRPS.

“Like many people, I didn’t know much about CRPS before connecting with Hank Luddington, co-president of RSDSA,” says Rosen. “I love that I can use my golf ability to help people with CRPS. My goal is to help RSDSA fundraise enough to help more people get just a little bit of happiness or relief.”

During the LDOG, Rosen will complete as many rounds of golf as possible in 12 hours. Virtual participants are then able to make a pledge for each hole that Rosen completes or make a one-time donation. Pledges and donations can be made before September 30th.

RSDSA also encourages participation at a golf course in your community. Each year we have teams across the country comprised of friends, family members, and colleagues who are able to make a one-time donation or a contribution for each hole he/she plays. Please reach out to us if you need assistance or resources in order to secure a golf course in your area.

Rosen is looking forward to beating last year’s goal in an effort to help RSDSA even more.

“The Longest Day of Golf was incredible last year,” says Rosen. “I had no idea how I would hold up through so many rounds of golf. I had a goal of completing 70 holes, but I surprised myself by playing more than 100 holes. This year my stretch goal is 144! Every single dollar donated through the Longest Day of Golf helps RSDSA do that. Let’s reach that $50,000 goal!”
