BIRKIRKARA, Malta, March 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Alex hopes to realise more than GBP1 million in vital funding towards finding a cure for Parkinson's disease.
deVere South Africa is presenting a fundraising golf tournament for British golfers at The Country Club Rocklands Course in Johannesburg, South Africa on the 24th of March 2011. The British Golf Invitational Series is a full day event designed to be both competitive and entertaining, where UK expats can gather together.
deVere is also pleased to announce that a special guest has been invited to the charity event. Legendary former F1 race car driver Sir Stirling Moss will be giving a speech at dinner time, as a number of signed memorabilia will be auctioned off in pursuit of raising funds for Alex Flynn's nominated charity.
In recent weeks, the deVere Group has been named one of the core sponsors for Alex Flynn's challenge to run 10MillionMetres, whilst fighting against the relentless progression of Parkinson's disease on his own body. Diagnosed over 2 years ago, Alex has taken the bold and courageous step to face this disease and deVere are supporting him all the way.
Alex Flynn said, "This is a fantastic opportunity for UK expats to play golf and at the same time help the deVere Group to raise funding towards vital research into Parkinson's disease in their support of my 10MillionMetres campaign. Parkinson's is a truly devastating disease which affects approximately 6 million plus people, both young and old, worldwide. The deVere Group have recognised the importance of the fight against Parkinson's. With the help, support and dedication of deVere South Africa and also with the kind assistance of Sir Stirling Moss, I am sure that the British Gold Invitational Series day will be a terrific success and that together we can make change happen for millions across the globe."
