Golfing for Growth, Opportunity, and Leadership

Tyler Lagasse's smooth swing is something we can all try to emulate

Tyler Lagasse has faced many obstacles in life.  He has used sports, specifically golf, to help him reach heights he and his family never thought were achievable.  Actually, perhaps only he and his family thought he could accomplish so much.  The rest of us are now convinced.  Tyler, who recently won his 6th straight Special Olympics Massachusetts (SOMA) golf gold medal, maintains a 3.8 GPA at Middlesex Community College, and gives frequent speeches and presentations on behalf of SOMA and autism awareness.

This year, Tyler as decided to give back even more. Tyler is participating in the in the 5th Annual Special Olympics Massachusetts (SOMA) Golf-a-Thon, presented by ITG-Canada and International Assets.  The SOMA Golf-a-Thon is a fundraising golf tournament held on Monday, September 26th, at Turner Hill Country Club in Ipswich, Ma.  Tyler will be playing in the two-round  tournament and pledging to raise at least $1,000 while doing it.  Click here to donate to Tyler’s efforts!
