I've facilitated an informal fundraiser annually since 2006 to benefit the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, which is a tax-deductible 501c3 organization and the largest non-profit substance abuse / addiction treatment organization in the USA. It has been in business for 70 years, and it helped transform me from a hopeless alcoholic to the happy, healthy, lousy golfer that I am today. Thanks to the generosity of my friends and family we have raised over $200,000! Last year a friend and I played 100 holes of golf in a day. This year I will return to the "Calorie Inferno" endeavor. I will be crushed if I fail to exceed 5000 calories, happy if I exceed 6000, and ecstatic if I burn 7000 calories during one calendar day. Please feel free to pledge a flat fee or to incentivize me as you see fit, whether by calorie or milestone or whatever you prefer. Your generosity will save lives and is very, very, very much appreciated.
