Shad’s has played an integral role for Muscular Dystrophy Canada since its inception and this year was no exception. The 43rd annual golf tournament raised $175,000 for research into muscular dystrophy bringing the cumulative total to $4.7 million.
Shad’s annual golf tournament was started when a group of aftermarket professionals felt bad for skipping off to play golf one day. Shad’s R&R (the R&R stands for “Remorse and Regret”) has become one of the automotive aftermarket’s key fundraisers and has been making contributions to aid research into muscular dystrophy since its inception.
This year attendees had the pleasure of listening to a dynamic presentation by 12-year-old Owen McGonigle, a spokesperson for Muscular Dystrophy. Owen has been dealing with muscular dystrophy since he was 11 months old. A huge fan of the London Nights, Owen is an accomplished fund raiser for muscular dystrophy, and an honourary fire chief in his home town of London Ontario.
