Each year, 24-40 players golf from dawn til dusk - sometimes as many as 100 holes, each raising money to fund a repurposing clinical trial. In support of this amazing effort, we secure a private course, and provide our players with refreshments, carts, prizes, and encouragement.  

This year, we're supporting Dr. Paul Swiecicki's project: 
Repurposing Old Drugs as New Therapies for Metastatic Thyroid Cancer.
