6.29.12 Kevin Cade is a MOCA Board Member, MOCA Board Treasurer and the son of MOCA co-founder Molly Cade. He is also part of the planning committee for the upcoming Molly Cade Scramble for Ovarian Cancer. In his Teal Together post, Kevin shares his thoughts on what the Scramble means to him.

Every time I pick up a golf club, I think of my mother, Molly. She loved to golf and loved spending a day on the course. She crisscrossed the country and the world with friends and family to explore new golf courses, but always appreciated the beautiful courses we have right here in Minnesota, especially Brackett’s Crossing Country Club

I’m involved in the Molly Cade Scramble for Ovarian Cancer in memory of my mom, but also to recognize all the women who have dealt with ovarian cancer. As our event motto states – we golf to celebrate the women of MOCA – and I ask that any golfer interested in taking a swing against this disease register today.

We golf to have fun, raise money for ovarian cancer research and MOCA programs, and most importantly, to show a sign of support for the women and families impacted by ovarian cancer. An ovarian cancer diagnosis can be devastating, but through MOCA we know that we aren’t alone – husbands, partners, children and friends can come together to connect and find support from others walking the same path. This is what MOCA means to me.

The Scramble is designed for players of all abilities (I only pick up a club a few times a year!) and promises to be a fun day filled with prizes and games at different tees, food, beverages and giveaway items. You won’t want to miss it. Spots are filling up quickly – so join me on the course and register today for a morning or afternoon tee time at Brackett’s Crossing Country Club in Lakeville on Monday, July 16.
