Why the Foundation
Thanks to a uniquely structured partnership with the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation, the ‘Golf Fore the Cure’ program is ensuring that women from all corners of the province participate in golf activities and raise funds for a cause that is dear to all women: breast cancer research.
Background history of involvement
Golf Fore the Cure was established primarily to promote women’s participation in golf. Thanks to its partnership with the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation, Golf Canada set out to raise awareness among the public at large about the fight against breast cancer and to raise funds for this cause. Through this program, Golf Canada wants to make a difference by appealing to the power of women golfers. Volunteers from all over the country have thus the opportunity to participate in the cause.
The initiative began in 2004 thanks to the devotion and generosity of Madame Thérèse Dumontet, at the time member of the Quebec Branch of the Canadian Ladies Golf Association. During recent years, support from thousands of women golfers made it possible to contribute more than $850,000 to the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation.
