We had mentioned at the beginning of this month that October is breast cancer awareness month!

As an organization that is committed to not only grow the game of golf for women, we are also committed to growing the women of the game. In doing so, we believe that health education about our bodies is vital to our mental and physical health.  With breast cancer being the second reason of deaths amongst women in America, it is important to be up to date on facts concerning breast cancer and breast health.
