NBC TOUR Championship Spot for the Bobby Jones Classic

Video Poster
NBC Sports and the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola helped bring about more awareness for Chiari malformation, syringomyelia and related disorders on Saturday, September 13, 2014 when Emmy-award winning sportscaster Jimmy Roberts interviewed CSF Chairman Paul Farrell (pictured left, with Dorothy Poppe, CSF Executive Director), and Bobby Jones historian, Dr. Linton Hopkins at East Lake Golf Club. Discussion involved syringomyelia, which brought Bobby Jones' legendary golf career to a swift halt. The spot highlighted the fact that syringomyelia, Chiari and their related disorders affect over a million people in the US, alone; more than ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). But while ALS had its "ice bucket challenge," similar awareness for Chiari and syringomyelia has yet to be sparked. *Press Release
