Topgolf has launched a fundraiser for the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston that allows Topgolf guests to help fund research into the interplay between physical activity, nutrition, obesity and cancer.
The fundraiser runs through Aug. 7.
"Too many individuals have been affected by cancer, including many of our associates and guests, which is why we are proud to support MD Anderson's mission to end cancer by promoting an active lifestyle and healthy behaviors," Erik Anderson, Topgolf Entertainment Group co-chairman and CEO, said in a press release.
Guests who donate at least $5 will receive a $10 game-play coupon for their next visit. Donations will go to MD Anderson’s Center for Energy Balance in Cancer Prevention and Survivorship.
Topgolf venues allow guests to play a variety of golf and other-sport related games. Travis Arnold, a Topgolf Houston customer, is a cancer survivor who was treated at MD Anderson.
"Being a big fan of Topgolf, I'm especially grateful for their End Cancer Campaign, which will help raise money and awareness about the need for cancer research," Arnold said in the release. "Research helped save my life, and I'm thankful to Topgolf and others who support this campaign."
