For the seventh year in a row, Globalview Advisors was a proud supporter of the A-T Children’s Project. Joseph Hirsch, Globalview’s Director of Client Relations, participated in the 9th Annual Rylie’s Angels Golf Tournament held at the Dove Canyon Country Club on November 9, 2020. The tournament’s events included their first ever helicopter ball drop, as well as having hole-in-one and putting contests, closest to the pin, and the longest and straightest drives. The tournament was followed with a Dinner Reception, Silent Auction, Raffle and Awards Ceremony.
Rylie is an extraordinary, 11-year-old girl living with A-T. Her positivity and love for life are contagious. Lives have been inspired by Rylie’s perseverance and courage as she faces the daily struggles of living with this extremely rare genetic disease that combines the worst symptoms of muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, immune deficiencies, and cancer. There are only about 500 to 600 confirmed cases of this orphan disease, which unfortunately puts it at the bottom of the list for federally or commercially funded research. There is no motivation for funding by large pharmaceutical companies, as the financial benefit to these companies does not exist. Because A-T is a multi-system disease, scientists believe that A-T research will help more prevalent diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, AIDS, and cancer.
