Myotonic Dystrophy Fundraiser – MDA

A Golf Fundraiser is being held today Sept 17 2012 for both Duchenne and Myotonic Muscular Dystrophy. The tournament is in Santa Ana, CA and begins at noon

Bade and Fisher families, who have been friends for over 70 years. The inspiration for the Bade Memorial Golf Tournament began in honor of Charlie Bade. Charlie,a golf enthusiast, was heartbroken when his dear friends’ grandson, Alex Fisher, was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy and later his son, Chris,and grandchildren were diagnosed with Myotonic muscular dystrophy(a disease they inherited from Charlie). By
the second year of the tournament, Chris had passed away. Since his passing, the tournament has come to mean even more. It is the inspiration for two families and spans three generations. Today the tournament continues to celebrate the lives of Charlie and Chris, additionally honoring Alex Fisher and Chris’ children, Scott, Nick and Christine.
