Regardless if it’s been ages since you last threw a disc or you’re an avid disc golfer, the Rock Hill Throw Pink event is just the thing for area women and girls.
Why? Because it connects females to the healthy sport of disc golf and helps support the local initiative Project Pink, which helps uninsured women get access to mammography screenings.
The female only event is from 9 a.m. to noon, Oct. 7th at Fewell Park in Rock Hill. The cost of $15 includes a skills clinic, the round of disc golf, Throw Pink T-shirt, a ticket to the final round of the US Disc Golf Championship, and a charitable donation to Project Pink.
Established in 2013, Throw Pink is a collection of disc golf events across the country with the mission of encouraging women and girls to get out and be more physically active, while at the same time making a difference for women's health initiatives, specifically breast cancer.
The come-as-you-are event encourages all women and girls to come. No disc golf skill is necessary. In fact, the event is set up for beginners. You don’t even need to bring discs. There will be plenty available to use.
“This is the perfect opportunity for ladies of all ages to try their hand at disc golf,” said Throw Pink Coordinator Sara Nicholson. “You’ll be surprised at how well you do, and you’ll be doing it for a good cause.”
Some great disc golf teachers will be on hand as well. They include disc golf pros like Debbie Scott, Ashley Collins, Elaine King, and Madison Walker, and others.
Following the brief skills clinic, attendees can test out their new skills with some fun and games (**more side games with prizes added this year), followed by a 12-hole relaxed round.
Register online at Disc Golf United or in person. Snacks and refreshments will be available. Direct any questions to Sara Nicholson at 800-476-3968 or at the Throw Pink Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/throwpink/
