About Blacksburg Battles Cancer
Blacksburg Country Club's Women's Golf Association, under the umbrella of the Blacksburg Country Club Charitable Foundation, is dedicated to raising funds for cancer focused non-profit organizations that serve the local community. These organizations shall engage in research to prevent, treat, or cure cancer and/or provide supportive services to cancer patients and their families.
The Women's Golf Association (WGA) of Blacksburg Country Club sponsored the highly successful Rally for the Cure golf tournament from 2005-2012, raising more than $50,000 for breast cancer education through the Rally and research and community programs through Susan G. Komen For The Cure.
Cancer is ever present in our community. With a determination to do more, the WGA decided to expand the event in 2013, hosting the first annual Blacksburg Battles Cancer golf tournament. The first two beneficiaries were the Virginia Blue Ridge Chapter of Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Special Love, Inc. During the past eight years (2013-2020), more than $200,000 has been raised for cancer charities.
We hope you will join us for as many Blacksburg Battles Cancer events as you can!
