Playing Golf With a Neurological Handicap
GOLF IS HARD ENOUGH WITHOUT INVOLUNTARY trembles, shaking and other difficult symptoms. But that doesn't stop the people in this video from playing golf and enjoying the game.
The video was made by the Colorado Neurological Institute (CNI) to raise awareness about neurological conditions such as Parkinson's Disease, stroke, brain and spinal tumor, head pain and multiple sclerosis. Folks afflicted with these conditions bravely manage to lead fulfilling lives, whether it's playing golf or doing some other activity that most of us take for granted.
(My mom suffers from Parkinson's. Maybe someone you know does too.)
The 15th CNI Golf Classic will be held on Monday, July 14 at the Golf Club at Bear Dance in Larkspur, Colorado. Last year's tournament raised more than $40,000 to help people with neurological conditions.
