Area Golf: Luman’s long day of golf for a cause | Pineandlakes Echo Journal

The Lake Shore resident was three holes shy of playing eight full rounds Friday, June 22, at The Vintage at Staples. He wasn’t doing it out of boredom or on a dare. Luman was doing it for his wife and the many others that suffer from multiple sclerosis.

“MS is a horrible, debilitating disease that affects your brain and your nervous system,” Luman said. “My wife (Vicki) has had it for 30 years and we’ve been married for 39. She uses a cane now, but she gets fatigued very easily now. She can’t stand very long and she can’t walk very far. She has to have a rest in the morning and one in the afternoon, but to be honest she’s very fortunate to have survived to be doing as well as she is for 30 years. There are a lot of people who go downhill quickly.”

For each hole Luman played, he received donations for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. While the golf wasn’t great, Luman’s other statistics were. He took 36,230 steps. He traveled 21.75 miles, burned 3,963 calories and, most important, raised more than $16,000 for MS research.

I never heard of a golf marathon until I read this story, but it earned $16,000 in donations.

Great job, thank you Preston Luman.

In Minnesota about 13,000 people live with MS.
