Scoring for Stuttering

Marathon Golfer Raises $2,600

For the third year, Matthew Sander supported the Stuttering Foundation by raising more than $2,600 in pledges during this year’s Hundred Hole Hike, a national golf marathon held each June at Ballyneal Golf Club in Holyoke, Colo. Matt golfed and hiked for more than 14 hours in support of the stuttering community, setting a new personal record of 126 holes.
