Golfers in Minnesota walk 100 holes in one day for charity
This story about three golfers walking five and a half rounds to raise money for charity is awesome.
This is insane. I get tired after riding in a cart for 18 holes and these three youngsters walked 100 holes from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. one day in June.
Sarah Storandt, Michael Storandt and Ben Goehring decided to raise money for Special Olympics Minnesota and to do it in a very unique way.
"Last year we were playing a round together about two weeks before the summer solstice, and I made the suggestion that we should try to play as many holes as possible on the solstice," said Goehring.
"Our goal was to play 72 holes because that is about the equivalent to walking 26 miles or close to a marathon. We ended up playing 81 holes that day, and it was a lot of fun."
"We decided that if we ever attempted it again we would do it for charity," added Sarah.
They raised over $1,000 or about $10 a hole which is pretty awesome for three kids just grinding five and a half rounds in the middle of the summer.
