Golfers tee off for ataxia

Thanks to nearly 400 participants at two summer golf tournaments‚ another $90‚000 has been raised for ataxia research at the University of Minnesota.

Brian Simmons enjoys a day on the links at the Karen's Hope Ataxia Benefit.

The fifth annual Karen’s Hope Ataxia Benefit‚ which was held June 19‚ brought 211 golfers to the Oak Marsh Golf Course in Oakdale and raised about $50‚000 for the Bob Allison Ataxia Research Center (BAARC).

On August 22‚ 178 golfers at the 9th annual Bob Allison Ataxia Golf Classic at the Owatonna Golf Club raised a projected $20‚200 for the cause.

Longtime BAARC supporter Connie Bakken announced that she would again match the proceeds from the Gold Classic through the Whitney Arcee Foundation‚ doubling the event’s impact on ataxia research.
