For the second consecutive year, the Robson Ranch Arizona Golf Club will participate in Rally for the Cure, a breast cancer awareness
campaign representing the largest grassroots women's golf program in America.
Though 2010 is the second year that the golf club will take part in the initiative, Rally for the Cure events in total have drawn more than 1.4 million people rallying in support of breast cancer awareness since the program began in 2006, the Eloy Enterprise reports.
"We are thrilled the Rally for the Cure cause-oriented program continues to help get the critical life-saving message of early breast cancer detection out to participants and members of their communities," Julie Michalowsi, a Conde Nast employee who has partnered with the event, told the news source.
On March 30, a field of approximately 60 players is expected to tee off at Robson Ranch in Casa Grande, Arizona.
Aside from a round of golf, the event will include a closest-to-the-pin contest and prizes such Titleist golf balls with the pink ribbon
breast cancer awareness symbol, an exclusive pink ribbon golf pin and a one-year subscription to a Conde Nast Publications magazine.
Events like Rally for the Cure aim to reduce the number of women who have not received a mammogram. The National Breast Cancer Foundation estimates that 13 million U.S. women over 40 have never been screened for breast cancer.
