The inaugural Fore Pink Mixed Classic Golf Tournament to support the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation took place on October 1st, 2009.
The Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation began as a grass roots organization in 2000 with the goal of helping those stricken with breast cancer in ways that went above and beyond traditional sources of medical and community support. What began as a local, all-women snowmobiling event has evolved into a national foundation, that continues to support both women and men in their day-to-day challenges in fighting their cancer.
Kelly lost her battle with breast cancer in 2004 but in her 8 year journey and through the foundation that carries her name, she has left an inspiring legacy of hope and practical caring. Today funds raised for the foundation through events such as the inaugural Fore Pink Mixed Classic Golf Tournament go directly to families across Canada.
