Eddie’s 550 Tee Off for Alzheimer’s Charity Golf Event
Mon., March 18-Mon., March 25
Knoxville health expert Eddie Reymond announces the Eddie’s 550 Tee Off for Alzheimer’s charity golf event that will welcome celebrities and the public to join in the fight against Alzheimer’s. The 8-day event is set for March 18 – 25, 2024 at The Club at Gettysvue with a kickoff event on day one which will welcome celebrity support such as Curt Maggitt, Scott Stallings, Mike Murray, Keith Delong, Missy Kane, Michelle Marciniak and more.
Reymond will celebrate his 55th birthday and chose to do so in a way that stretches his physical and mental
endurance all while making a difference for a cause that is close to his heart. The eight days of sunup to
sundown golfing will feature approximately 1,000ft of elevation and 5+ miles of walking for each round of 18
holes. This is in addition to the golf bag he will carry, and no golf cart used. Reymond is training for the grueling
level of physical and mental fatigue.
“Cognitive health is so important and if I can help make a difference for the future of Alzheimer’s, I’m proud to
push my mind and body to extreme measures,” Eddie Reymond said. “As I watched heroes like Pat Summitt
and others face the disease, I wish I could have done more to help. There’s something inside of me that feels
like I can help do that now.”
The kickoff event on March 18th is open to the public to golf with Reymond and the celebrities, as well as
spectator passes available for purchase. Awards for closest to the pin and longest drive will be honored.
Proceeds will benefit Pedal for Alzheimer’s which carries on the mission to spread awareness and raise funds
for Alzheimer’s research, education, support and care.
”We are proud to support Eddie’s intense measure to raise funds for Alzheimer’s,” Josh Crisp, Board President
said. “Long days of endurance punishment on the body is much like the days for those facing the disease.
Pedal for Alzheimer’s couldn’t be more honored to carry on the fight for those who can’t.”
The Eddie’s 550 Tee Off for Alzheimer’s event is open to the public March 18th for a shotgun start at 12:00 pm
EST. Title sponsors include Eddie’s Health Shoppe and Solinity Marketing. To learn more about sponsoring
