COEUR D’ALENE-- The Golf Club at Black Rock in Coeur d’Alene was the host of the first annual Steve Gleason Classic Monday.
The tournament is a fundraiser for the Gleason Initiative Foundation, which raises awareness towards ALS and provides cutting edge technology and equipment for those with the disease.
Gleason still lives in New Orleans with his family, but he was at the event.
Many of Gleason’s friends were on hand for the event and they continue to marvel at the strength he shows battling his disease.
Some of the money raised was slated to go to a few local charities as well.
