2013-07-01_18-36-17_495 (2)Why did you decide to participate in the GI Society Golf Marathon?

It’s a good way to support a Canadian society who provides crucial support to people affected by gastrointestinal diseases.

What is your fundraising goal?


How many holes of golf are you hoping to play on October 5?

100 holes would be nice, but I won’t stop there if I get the chance!

Have you had any holes-in-one?

No, but with those 100 holes I am going to play, I hope to increase that!

What’s your favorite golf joke?

Four old men went into the pro shop after playing 18 holes of golf.

The pro asked, “Did you guys have a good game today?”

The first old guy said, “Yes, I had three riders today.”

The second old guy said, “I had the most riders ever. I had five.”

The third old guy said, “I had seven riders, the same as last time.”

The last old man said, “I beat my old record. I had 12 riders today.”

After they went into the locker room, another golfer who had heard the old guys talking about their game went to the pro and said, “I’ve been playing golf for a long time and thought I knew all the terminology of the game, but what’s a rider?”

The pro said, “A rider is when you hit the ball far enough to actually get in the golf cart and ride to it.”

Francis’ message: Donors can support me the traditional way with the amount of their choice. But if they want to spice things up a bit, donors can put a monetary value per hole that I will play that day. Donors can also add a bonus donation of their choice if I get a hole-in-one!
