The Ugly Pant Golf Classic returns to Copper Point

Fundraiser golf tournament Saturday, October 14th

If you have a set of ugly pants lying around that are begging to be worn, the Ugly Pant Golf Classic at Copper Point is right around the corner, offering the perfect opportunity to wear a pair while fundraising for a good cause.

This year, Ugly Pants and the RAD Recreation Adaptive Society (RRAS) are joining forces to ensure that adaptive equipment is a possibility for everyone by providing low-cost rentals in sport locations around B.C.

“Sustaining a paralyzing injury doesn’t have to mean an end to your active outdoor lifestyle. There are many mobility-assisting devices available to help individuals with a new or lifelong paralysis,” stated RRAS in a press release.

One woman was struggling to continue living her outdoor lifestyle due to the high cost of adaptive outdoor equipment, a sacrifice that RRAS is working hard to avoid. Tanelle Bolt sustained a spinal cord injury that left her paralyzed. While trying to cope with her injury, Ms. Bolt wanted to continue her active way of life and that was made possible through the efforts of the RRAS.

The society ensures that people in need are able to enjoy a better quality of living. Paraplegics, quadriplegics, the elderly and those suffering with diseases such as Parkinson’s are finding a new lease on life and enjoying the great outdoors without having to spend thousands of dollars on equipment.

“The RAD Recreation Adaptive Society gives individuals with short-term and permanent mobility issues living in or visiting B.C. the ability to rent adaptive equipment for skiing, snowboarding, paddle-boarding, biking and hiking,” said RRAS.

For those who are interested in contributing to the increased mobility of those struggling with injuries, disabilities, or chronic illness, The Ugly Pant Golf Classic will be held on The Ridge at Copper Point Saturday, October 14th at 1 p.m. with a shotgun start. Tickets are $100 for golf, dinner, and a silent auction. Hole sponsors and silent auction items are currently being accepted. If you have any questions or would like to register, please contact Tanelle Bolt at info@radsociety.ca.
