He did it.
A full day of golf, 306 holes, 1195 strokes and probably better than a six-figure donation to the PVHS Foundation for the proposed cancer center in northern Colorado.
I wrote earlier this month about Poudre Valley Health System CIO Russ Branzell’s personal connection to the cancer center and his quest to raise money for the project. The Fort Collins Coloradoan also wrote about Russ and son Chandler over the weekend.
It’s not too late to donate to the cancer center effort. Visit engageinlife.org or text ENGAGE to 90999 to donate $5. The Foundation is still adding up donations, but Russ was near the $100,000 mark before the day began.
So how did Russ do it? By playing some holes in a minute or two, like these two holes that took him less than 5 minutes to finish. There are also lots of pictures of Russ’ big day of golf on our Flickr pages.
