Breakfast begins at 7 a.m., followed by an 8 a.m. shotgun start.

All proceeds from the event benefit First Priority of the Lakeshore, a Christian Campus Club mininstry.

For more information on the event, contact Kenda at First Priority at 842-9042. Registration deadline is June 15.

On June 25, West Ottawa Golf Course will host the Alex Crum Memorial Golf Outing, which will strive to bring awareness of Factor V Leiden, a blood clotting disorder.

Crum passed away as a 15 year-old sophomore at GHHS in 2007 when a blood clot broke loose in her leg and traveled to her lungs. Upon her death, it was found that she was a carrier of the Factor V gene, increasing her risk of blood clots. 

Crum was active in soccer, golf and the ski club at Grand Haven.

Proceeds from the golf outing are used to support Grand Haven Athletics, student scholarships, Factor V and Pulmonary Embolism (PE) awareness.
