On October 1st FibroFighters hosted its 3rd annual golf tournament to raise funds to help finance many of our patient-driven initiatives. We were so pleased to see nearly a 50% participation increase over the previous year and a fun day was had by all! Next year we hope to increase both the number of sponsors and participants and would like to invite any of our golfers or sponsors within the community interested in participating in next year’s tournament to contactus@fibrofighters.org. The tentative date of Sunday, September 29. Thank you to all our sponsors, participants, and volunteers who helped make this tournament a success.

FibroFighters is proud to announce our 3rd annual Golf Tournament in San Marcos California Sunday Oct 1st. It will be held at The Links at the Lakehouse in San Marcos, California. A gorgeous location perfect for playing a few holes and supporting the efforts of FibroFighters!

Three years ago, our son-in-law Matt Merscheim began this tournament in hopes of raising funds in support of our son Robert and all the Fibrolamellar patients we have helped around the globe. Each year this event, held the first week of October, has grown and we hope to see that trend continue in 2023. We invite anyone to join us in San Marcos, CA this year!

There are four unique sponsorship levels: $250, $500, $750, and $1000. All proceeds from the tournament will go to fund our patient driven initiatives and allow us to keep fighting directly for our amazing Fibro warriors and their families. We offer these patients help in real time while longer term bench research, translational projects and clinical trials are being developed. We want everyone to survive so they can share in the joy when longer term treatments and a cure may be found.

You can text the phrase “FibroGolf23” to 44321 to learn more or sign up or you can donate directly on this website.

FibroFighters offer its deepest thanks to Matt for his efforts, Ryan our other son-in-law, and volunteers who help to make this tournament possible! Most importantly to our participants, sponsors, and donors who without their generosity FibroFighters could not be helping so many Fibrolamellar patients from around the world each year.

If you are unable to attend, please consider donating and receive a nice FibroFighters polo shirt!
