Fight for MS

May of 2002, my wife Linda, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Our Family was not familiar with MS, so we started researching to learn as much as we could. Upon discovering there was no cure, my daughters and I wanted to find a way to support the research of Multiple Sclerosis. In 2003, we hosted the first annual Fight \"FORE\" MS! It was a huge success and we couldn't wait to continue the tournament each year. After 15 years, we have donated over $170,000 to the National MS Society to help find a cure. The support and encouragement has been phenomenal and very reassuring for our family and many others suffering from Multiple Sclerosis. A big thanks goes out to all supporters of our tournament. -Johnny Ray (www.jrt4ms.com)
