In August, the Australian golf community and Challenge golf clubs in Australia are asking to devote a member day to the memory of Jarrod Lyle to help raise money for Challenge, which supports children with cancer.

After diagnosing cancer three times during his life, Jarrod Lyle understood the hardships that young people and their families encounter when they suffer from this disease. Jarrod was an ambassador for Challenge, and Jarrod & # 39; s Gift is the legacy made in his honor. All amounts raised by #DoingItForJarrod will go towards the goal of providing Challenge with practical support during a child's cancer journey.

In support of Jarrod's legacy, Challenge asks all golf clubs across the country to engage in #DoingItForJarrod in August, the month of its birthday and death, by dedicating a competition day in its memory to raise funds for this. important case

Challenge supports children and their families living with cancer, and eases the cancer journey for the whole family by offering practical support and fun experiences 365 days a year.

"To be able to continue helping other children and families through cancer diagnosis on behalf of Jarrod, is something that is very important to me," said Briony Lyle, Jarrod's wife.

"With the help of golf clubs in Australia, we will hopefully be able to raise important funds to support Jarrod's legacy."

To support and thank clubs for their involvement, all participating clubs will participate in the draw and win an invitation to play along with the best golfers in the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia and European Tour co-sanctioned Australian PGA Championship pro- held on Wednesday December 18 at RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast.

"Jarrod & # 39; s work with Challenge was incredibly important and although he is no longer here to facilitate his own events in support of charity, we as a golf community find it important to continue his legacy," said Gavin Kirkman, CEO of the PGA of Australia, owner of the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia.

"We are honored to partner with Challenge for this initiative, and with such a strong connection to both Challenge and Jarrod Lyle, we believed it would be appropriate to give a lucky participant the chance to get alongside the best to play in the Australian PGA Championship pro-am at a world-class golf tournament. "

Australia CEO Stephen Pitt emphasized the importance of the # DoingItForJarrod initiative and how even the smallest events can have a big impact.

"One of Jarrod's skills was to hear and help people and golf clubs who didn't have a big voice," said Pitt. & # 39; He did things regardless of the size or effort he needed when he could. This is our way to follow the big or small suit, to ensure that his legacy remains. "

Encouraging members to dress in yellow, create a yellow theme, and sell Challenge merchandise in your club are just a few examples of ways to raise funds at club events in August with gifts that were tax deductible.

"Having known Jarrod since his first diagnosis, I saw him grow as an individual and as a sportsman. His ability to empathize and connect with people was truly remarkable. His gift and legacy to Challenge is to make sure that other families making the cancer journey are supported, "said Challenge CEO David Rogers.
