Ryder Cup hero Darren Clarke will once again be supporting Breast Cancer Campaign throughout 2009 by encouraging golfing clubs all across the UK to take part in the charity’s £100 Golf Club Challenge.

The £100 Challenge is an annual initiative where Campaign asks golf clubs UK-wide to hold a fundraising event in support of the charity. This can be anything from a pink-themed charity tournament to raffles, coffee mornings or even choosing us as your charity of the year.

All the money raised will help Campaign fund innovative world-class research.

Darren Clarke says: “Breast cancer has touched my life, so that's why I became involved in Breast Cancer Campaign’s £100 Golf Challenge." Clarke's wife Heather died of the disease in 2006.

"Taking part is simple and it’s a great way to have fun with friends while raising vital funds for research into breast cancer." 

Last year over 125 golf clubs across the UK took part in the £100 Challenge, raising a fantastic £70,000 for the charity. Campaign is hoping to smash this target in 2009.

The fundraising challenge is set at £100. However, there are various fundraising levels in place for those that think they can beat this target: Bronze (£100), Silver (£500), Gold (£1,000) and Pink (£2,500).

So no matter how large or small your club is, you can get involved and take up the challenge in 2009.

Campaign has produced a handy fundraising guide with helpful tips and ideas to get you started, plus a dedicated team member will be on hand to provide you with all the support and materials you need to make your event a complete success.
