Golfweek honors my Dad

My dad, Mark Laesch, is battling ALS.  He was diagnosed earlier this year.  Golfweek captured, very well, how his positive attitude, determination and faith have driven him through this tough battle.  I’ve witnessed it first hand, and it has been incredible. I’m very proud of my dad. I’m very proud of everything his done with Golfstat and everything he has done in life. He has always been a man that does not cut corners. He does things right and he works hard.  He lives by a strong moral code, guided by his faith and upbringing. I am and will always be very proud to call him my dad.

Please check out Golfweek‘s article below. Can’t thank Golfweek enough for putting this together:

Could use your help for the Walk to Defeat ALS in Indianapolis

Walk to Defeat ALS

Dear Internet,

Asking for your help. My siblings and I have team for the Walk to Defeat ALS in Indianapolis on 9/24/16. We have a goal of raising $2k for our team. All proceeds are donated to the the ALS Association. We would really appreciate any donations or people joining the team. (You can join without actually doing the walk.) ALS is Lou Gehrig’s disease. It’s the disease that inspired the Ice Bucket Challenge about a year ago. It’s the topic of the current documentary, Gleason. It’s a rough disease that gradually takes away your ability to use your muscles (walking, use of your arms, talking). We would appreciate any and all support (including sharing this blog post on social media). Thanks!

Sincerely,

Brian
