In honor of Mason Glassgold, who lost a courageous, three-year battle with a cancerous brain tumor just days before his 11th birthday, the marathon “Mason’s Twenty-Fore Straight” was created by family friend, Mike Maloney, TPC Sugarloaf general manager, along with featuring Mason’s stepfather Matt Wilson – to honor him and support the many other brave children battling the disease.

“This 24-hour golf marathon has seen participants travel from far and wide to help us in this battle,” said Maloney. “Obviously playing so much golf can be grueling, but it’s the least we can do to honor these little warriors who endure so much pain and show such courage every day in their fight against this terrible disease.”

The event aligns closely with the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s strong commitment to “care, cure, thrive,” helping families of children with brain cancer navigate the challenging course of the disease, while funding science for its treatment. of brain tumors in children. During the marathon, two players from each team must stay on the court for the entire 24 hours — they can endure back pain, headaches, and tired feet, and experience only a small amount of pain and exhaustion that a child being treated for cancer can feel.
