Chase for a Cure Tournament Returns to Valley CC

The third annual Chase of a Cure Golf Tournament is set to return to Valley Country Club in 2023, after being held at Crystal Lake in 2022. 

The tournament is held by RI’s Michael Callahan and his wife Kate to benefit their son Chase. 

Chase Callahan, born on May 3, 2018, was diagnosed with rare disease called Kyphoscoliotic Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (KEDS) five months later

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome is a genetic connective tissue disorder. It affects the heart, blood vessels, joints, eyes, and spine. 

“Chase just underwent his first surgery at Boston Children’s and came through it very well. All the doctors and staff of the hospital were phenomenal,” said Michael Callahan, Chase’s dad. 

He adds, “ Chase is looking forward to Tee Ball, swimming in our pool and taking putter lessons at Buttonhole.” 

The 2023 tournament will be held on Monday, May 22 at Valley. 

All proceeds benefit The Marfan Foundation. 

The shotgun start begins at 12:30 p.m. and dinner is a 5:30 p.m.
