The Bag Boy Company, the maker of golf bags and push carts, is sponsoring two golf events in October and encouraging golfers to walk the course. 

On Monday, October 5, 2009, Bag Boy will be sponsoring The PJ Gaier Memorial Golf Tournament at Stonehenge Golf & Country Club in Richmond.  Gaier, a triathlete and exercise advocate, always insisted on walking the course when playing golf.  Therefore, all participants will play the first 18 holes of the 36-hole event pushing a Bag Boy cart.  Proceeds from this event will benefit Connor’s Heroes Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting childhood cancer through direct assistance, awareness, and research.

On Saturday, October 10, 2009, Bag Boy will host the 2nd annual “Walk The Course Day” at The Crossings Golf Club in Glen Allen, Virginia.  Golfers that walk the course will receive discounted greens fees, and will have access to a complimentary Bag Boy push cart, enabling them to experience the health benefits of walking.  The special day will include contests, promotions, discounts, raffles, health screenings and information from Bon Secours Sports Medicine and much more.  Proceeds from greens fees, raffle sales and the sale of the Bag Boy push carts will be donated to The First Tee Richmond and Chesterfield.  Call 804.261.0000, ext. 2 to reserve your Walk the Course tee time.

“Recent studies by medical experts reveal the health benefits associated with pushing your golf clubs around a golf course are immeasurable,” said Craig Ramsbottom, President, The Bag Boy Company.  “We are thrilled to participate in local events that help raise awareness to the health benefits of walking, while also supporting some very worthy charitable organizations.”
