Alex Wayman never imagined his lower back pain could be caused by a renal blockage in his left kidney. But in late 2004, the pain became unbearable and he ended up in Massachusetts General Hospital.
“I am fully recovered now, but the experience changed my life, and made me realize the importance of healthy, functioning kidneys and how lucky we are to access world-class medicine here in Boston,” says Wayman, who will chair The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) Cadillac Golf Classic on June 12. Held at the prestigious Boston Golf Club in Hingham, this is the first NKF tournament hosted in Boston for years.
Wayman feels the excellent host committee, dedicated sponsors, and incomparable golf course will make the tournament exceptional. Teams must consist of four amateur golfers whose total USGA Handicap Index is 42.0 or more. Each qualified winning team and the second and third finishers are also invited to compete at the national championship in Pebble Beach, CA. Proceeds from the event will go directly to NKF vital programs and services.
