I hope this letter finds you healthy and well. My name is Jeff Swick, Founder and CEO of the PHAALS Foundation (Playing Hardball Against ALS Foundation). The PHAALS Foundation has been working hard to continue the support and fight for ALS patients and families through this unique time.
Due to our current experiences, the ALS research industry has suffered a huge financial hit. In response, the PHAALS Foundation has been blessed to offer greatly needed financial support to ALS – TDI through a 2020 ALS Research Grant in April 2020. Through support from individuals like you, we sponsored a $50,000.00 matching gift campaign through ALS-TDI. The response was incredible and our $50,000.00 was not only matched, but ultimately generated a $200,000.00 financial gift campaign. Dollars raised through our annual Putnam County Golf and Walk Event made this humbling and rewarding financial campaign possible.
After much discussion, we have decided to alter traditional plans for the 2020 Putnam County Golf and Walk in consideration of the best interest for all participants. We will hold a Golf and Walk ONLY event this year WITHOUT a follow up gathering at the Buckeye Club. We will work diligently with Pike Run Golf Club to ensure the safety and health of our participants. Below are details for the 2020 Putnam County Golf and
Saturday September 12th, 2020
at Pike Run Golf Club
GOLF will begin at 8:30am (registration at 7:30am)
WALK will begin at 11:00am (registration at 10:00am)

Instead of donated raffle/auction items, this year we are asking for a CASH contribution to the Golf and Walk Event. We understand the dynamics of our lives are much different in 2020. However, our mission remains to help support those within the ALS community. We hope you and/or your company are again willing to support our event.
Please email us at [email protected] for more information or to register as a sponsor. If you have any questions you can also contact Ryan Stechschulte at 419-549-0151. On behalf of our PHAALS Board of Directors and the Putnam Co. ALS Golf and Walk Committee I want to thank you for all your support over the years. This event has helped over 150 families and led to $150,000.00 in direct contribution to ALS Research at ALS Therapy Development Institute. YOU are the reason we can achieve such wonderful success. We look forward to having you as part of our ALS Golf and Walk Event again this year.
