Events

Every 90 minutes, someone is diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and every 90 minutes, someone dies from the disease.

 

The ALS community faces daunting challenges. Team Gleason was founded to provide critical equipment, technology, long-term innovative care services, and life adventures for ALS patients.

Since 2011, we have provided over $20 million in services while partnering with technology giants and innovators to create enhanced technology to support added independence for those living with ALS.

Team Gleason has always led with “yes.” We aim to reach 70-100% of ALS families so they know our services and what is available to them. Our expanded goal is to accelerate access further so people living with the disease have the same level of service and expertise no matter where they are diagnosed or live.

Funds from events organized by Team Gleason and people like you are crucial to helping Team Gleason. Each year, dozens of people host large and small events that result in hundreds of thousands of dollars being raised to strengthen Team Gleason’s life-changing direct-service programs.

TShaw Strong

May 16, 2024
Old Hickory Country Club – Nashville, TN

GOLF TOURNEY | RECEPTION | SILENT AUCTION | LIVE MUSIC | AWARDS DINNER

Helping those with ALS live the life they deserve.

ABOUT THE TOURNAMENT

Established in 2016, the TShawStrong Golf Invitational began as a natural combination of Tim Shaw’s love for the game of golf and his dedication to aiding in the search for a cure for ALS. The goal of the TShawStrong Golf Invitational is simple: to raise as much money as possible to help those who battle ALS every day, as Tim has since his diagnosis in 2014.

Through his nonprofit, TShawStrong, Inc., Tim continues to raise money to help those who have been diagnosed with ALS and to aid in the search for a cure. One hundred percent of the proceeds for the TShawStrong Golf Invitational will be put toward his pursuit of that cause.

Presented by the Tennessee Titans Foundation, the TShawStrong Golf Invitational will be held at the historic Old Hickory Country Club on October 2, 2023. A beautiful, challenging and immaculately maintained course steeped in Tennessee golf history, Old Hickory Country Club is the perfect venue for the all-day charity event that kicks off with lunch before a shotgun start, followed by cocktails, awards, live and silent auctions, dinner, and a casino night.

Join us for a great day of golf, entertainment, and camaraderie to help Tim in his fight to end ALS.
