ORLANDO, Fla. (March 18, 2013) – PGA Tour golfers Brian DavisBrian Gay, and D.A. Points are joining forces to form Team APH in honor of Arnold Palmer and the legacy he has built through   Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies

The golfers will come together for the first time as Team APH to lead dozens of cancer patients and their families and hundreds of friends in the first-ever  Arnie’s March Against Children’s Cancer – a walk around Arnold Palmer’s Bay Hill Club & Lodge . The event will raise money and awareness for children’s cancer as the golfers kick off tournament week at the  Arnold Palmer Invitational Presented by MasterCard

Davis, Gay, and Points and their families have all received care from the hospitals bearing the names of Arnold Palmer and his late wife, Winnie. They have unique and strong personal connections to the hospitals and have always admired Palmer for his achievements on and off the course.

“My family and I are eternally grateful to Arnold Palmer and the wonderful team of doctors and nurses at the hospitals. Brian, D.A. and I want to be part of Team APH because of everything Arnold Palmer and his hospitals have done for our families. Team APH allows us to carry his legacy of caring for families and children.” - Brian Davis

“We’re very lucky to have had Arnold Palmer Hospital nearby to provide the care we need for our families. Showcasing the hospital logo on our bags allows us to repay our debt of gratitude to Mr. Palmer and spread the word about the great care the hospital provides.” - Brian Gay

“Mr. Palmer paved the way for us to be successful as golfers, but he is so much more than golf and you can see that in care my family and so many others have received at Arnold Palmer Hospital and Winnie Palmer Hospital. It’s an honor to be a member of Team APH.” - D.A. Points

As they compete on golf courses around the globe, the Team APH golfers will carry a visible reminder of Palmer’s influence and the impact his hospitals have on so many lives. Their golf bags will be adorned with the colorful logo of Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children.

“We’re very appreciative of the golfers on Team APH and their families for their generosity and the commitment they’ve shown to become ambassadors of the legacy and the hospitals Arnold built,” said John Bozard, president of Arnold Palmer Hospital. “Arnie’s March Against Children’s Cancer is just the beginning for Team APH and we look forward to a long and fruitful friendship.”

Funds raised through Arnie’s March will be directed to cancer research and clinical trials at the  

Haley Center for Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders and Families at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children.
