This year’s Friedreich’s Ataxia Foundation Charity Golf Day was held by “Freight on Board” at the Heritage Golf & Country Club in the Yarra Valley.
This charity event is put together annually by the Freight Industry to show support for people who a suffering from Friedreich’s Ataxia. This is a rare, inherited, degenerative disease. It damages the spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and the cerebellum portion of the brain. This condition tends to develop in children and teens and gradually worsens over time.
Every cent raised in donations from the charity golf day goes back to help fund research for Friedreich’s Ataxia disease. The charity golf day raised $50,056 which is a fantastic contribution from the Freight Industry.
Representing ACFS were Christopher Vilimovsky, General Manager VIC and Dan Warren, Operations Manager – Transport. Representing AGS was John Forster, General Manager. Although the team hadn’t played golf for a while, they come out strong and managed to hit some nice shots to anchor the team to victory with ACFS/AGS taking home first place. However, the biggest victory of the day was the event raised over $50,000 for the cause.
AGS and ACFS Port Logistics would like to thank Freight On Board International Services Pty Ltd for running the charity event and to all who contribute to raising over $50,000 which will help support people who are suffering from Friedreich’s Ataxia.
