Announcement from the LPGA Amateur Golf Association:
As a women’s sports organization, the LPGA is concerned about women’s health in all forms. That is why today the LPGA Women’s Network and the LPGA Amateur Golf Association are proud to announce their alliance with the Fibroid Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting women suffering with fibroids, funding research, and providing education.
“I wanted to partner with the LPGA for many reasons,” said Fibroid Foundation Founder and CEO Sateria Venable. “First, of course, I love golf! It helps with spinal alignment, pelvic flexibility, and exercise—all very important for fibroid patients.”
With the launch of a self-care platform in 2019, there is no better time to join together to help support women’s health through golf.
The first part of the alliance began on April 28th as an informative webinar exclusive to the members of the LPGA Amateur Golf Association, outlining the benefits golf can provide for women’s uterine health as well as providing information about fibroids, which affects the majority of women at some point in their lives.
“We are proud to align with the Fibroid Foundation to support women’s health through education, informational services, and showing health benefits golf can provide,” said Vice President of LPGA Amateur Golf Association Mary-Lee Cobick.
Continuing with the Fibroid Foundation’s efforts, the LPGA Women’s Network and LPGA Amateur Golf Association will provide advice and inspiration for new female golfers to highlight the health benefits of the game and in turn promote golf to members of the Fibroid Foundation through #inviteHER Experiences, LPGA Tournaments, and Women’s Leadership days hosted across the country.
