Packy's story and the creation of Never Give Up 26

When Never Give Up 26 founder's brother died of colon cancer, he decided to follow his brother's lead and make a difference. He created a nonprofit to honor his brother, support his local community and help families who have loved ones suffering with Crohn's disease or colon cancer. The foundation is named after Patrick Purcell, also known as Packy. During his battle with Crohn's disease and colon cancer, Packy never felt sorry for himself or asked why. Despite his illnesses, he continued to positively impact the lives of those around him.

Golf with a purpose

The most popular way to support our amazing cause is through our annual golf tournament. It's a great way to have fun while supporting Never Give Up 26 and our mission. The tournament features:

18 holes of golf at the 1757 Golf Club

Packy's motto throughout his battle with cancer was "Never give up." His goal was to continue that message and help those who are in need. Whether it's supporting local students or generating awareness for Crohn's disease and colon cancer, we're here to make a difference in our community.

You can be a part of something amazing. Join us today and help spread Packy's message.
