Graeme Robertson  Wokingham, ENG
On Monday 30th May 2016 I will attempt to play 18 holes of golf in 1 day ... at 18 different golf clubs.
I have Captained TEAM ENGLAND for the last 5 years and want to lead the way raising funds to support my team going forwards.
I have devised drive2drive as a campaign to raise awareness and much needed funds to help fund TEAM ENGLAND in Internationals and support the Disabled Golf Association with their infrastructure costs to help spread the word that disabled people can play some awesome golf!

I was diagnosed with Primary Progressive MS in 1998, my condition has deteriorated and now struggle to walk across a room unaided and use a walking frame to get about, yet I can just about play 18 holes of golf.

More than that I enjoy being out in the fresh air with fun and friendship and the 19th hole. My wife Sue and I discovered the neurological and health benefits of playing golf back in 2010 so our focus is on golf as a therapy and for rehabilitation. Members play in the Order of Merit to gain points to attempt to qualify in TEAM ENGLAND each year, so our series of home-internationals provide a focus and drive to spur people on, as well as capturing the media's attention.
Together with our co-founders we have established disabledgolf.org.uk  as a not-for-profit CIC.I've always had a positive outlook and a good sense of humour, people say I'm an inspiration.
I  have always loved golf and despite my condition I have found a way to play again - Where there's a will, there's a way!
I'm taking on the drive2drive challenge in the area where I live in Berkshire/Oxfordshire/Buckinghamshire. Many thanks to the clubs for their support (and use of a buggy!)
