For eight years, the Fore Noah and Friends Charity Golf Tournament has stood as a symbol of hope for parents of children battling neuroblastoma, an aggressive pediatric cancer more common in infants than leukemia. Andy and Lara Nelson, whose son, Noah, has been disease-free for seven years, founded the event to fund neuroblastoma research, raising more than $500,000 for the Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation (CNCF).

The Nelsons have decided to end their involvement with the springtime event but are willing to pass the responsibility on to families, friends and supporters in the greater Phoenix area.

Pat Tallungan, CNCF president, said she is open to changing the name of the event, or seeing it adopted by another neuroblastoma family, or even a business — so long as it maintains its family focus. Longbow Golf Club has hosted the event since its inception and is willing to continue running the golf side of the event, as well as the luncheon, Tallungan said.

CNCF has awarded more than $2 million for neuroblastoma research and education. For more information on CNCF and how to support neuroblastoma research and education, contact info@cncfhope.org, or call (866) 671-2623.
