Two local students will be playing 100 holes of golf on June 11 at Arbutus Ridge Golf Course to raise money to support the work of YoungLife in Qualicum Beach.

KSS Grade 12 students Ryan Becker and Jesse Goring will play 100 holes as part of the YoungLife Vancouver Island Ironman Invitational Golf Classic. YoungLife is a group where volunteer leaders build a mentor-style relationship with teenagers.

“We were both part of YoungLife growing up,” Becker said. “So we’ve signed up for the Ironman Challenge. We’re trying to help raise money to send kids to camp in the summer, which was an amazing experience that we got to be part of and want to make it so that others can have that same experience.”

With a fundraising goal of $1,500, both Becker and Goring will be looking for donations before the big day on June 11. You can donate at www.younglife.ca/ryan_golf_qualicum or call Doug Lochead, head of YoungLife Qualicum Beach, at 250-927-8852 or e-mail Dlochead@younglife.ca
