adidas to support Longest Day Challenge

2015 03 81328903

adidas Golf is to continue its official partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support for the Longest Day Golf Challenge 2015.


It will mark the third successive year that adidas Golf has backed the challenge, which asks golfers of all ages and abilities to take on 72 holes of golf in one day and help raise money for people affected by cancer.

Macmillan provides invaluable therapists, nurses, benefits advisors, and support line workers who make sure people living with cancer have the best team in their corner and no one has to face cancer alone.
"It’s a fantastic opportunity for golfers across the UK to unite behind a great initiative" - Greg Pearse

Greg Pearse, marketing director at adidas Golf, said: “We are incredibly proud and excited to continue our partnership with Macmillan for the Longest Day Golf Challenge.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for golfers across the UK to unite behind a great initiative and raise lots of money of this incredible charity.”

Macmillan and adidas Golf are calling on enthusiasts to play four rounds of golf on Sunday, June 21 (or another day of their choice between April and August), with the top four teams that complete the challenge flown over to Portugal to compete for the coveted 2015 Longest Day Challenge Cup at the Prestigious Boavista Resort.

Last year, more than 4,000 golfers took part in the challenge, which raised in excess of £750,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
