Michael Ford Memorial Charity Golf Tournament
Today we are one of the sponsors for the Michael Ford Memorial Charity Golf Tournament at the Ngahinepouri golf club.
The charity was established 19 years ago by Michael Ford, a successful dynamic businessman, whose World was turned upside down when he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Michael sadly passed away 12 months ago.
MS is one of the most common diseases of the central nervous system. MS Waikato provides support services to over 500 clients; they work closely with people at very low points in their lives, people in crisis, people going through enormous change and who are emotional as a result.
In particular, they support people who are newly diagnosed or currently unwell. MS Waikato also provides support services to those affected by Huntington’s Disease, ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia with services provided for family/whanau and carers too.
