National Kidney Foundation's 23rd Annual Maryland Golf Classic Raises Funds to Fight Kidney Disease
Date:6/17/2009

Redskins Kicker Shaun Suisham's Foursome Takes First Place

WASHINGTON, June 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Kidney Foundation's 23rd Annual Maryland Golf Classic presented by Capital Carpets & Ronald D. Paul Companies raised close to $60,000 to fight kidney disease in the Washington DC area, a region that has the highest prevalence of kidney disease in the nation. The tournament took place on June 15 at the picturesque Whiskey Creek Golf Club in Ijamsville, Maryland.

The weather was nice, the course was beautiful, and the people involved with the tournament as both players and volunteers were great. To top it off we were all there for a great cause - the National Kidney Foundation." Suisham and his foursome, which included HGTV's "Designed to Sell" host Shane Tallant, have won an invitation to participate in the NKF National Championship held at the famed Pebble Beach Resorts in January 2010.

Ron Paul, the tournament's co-chair, President of the Ronald D. Paul Companies and Chairman of EagleBank, was on the course just five months after receiving his second transplant in January with a kidney donated by his Chief Financial Officer Kathy McCallum who also participated in the tournament. "I was very fortunate that I did not have to search for a donor, but the situation is different for more than 80,000 individuals on the waiting list for kidneys. To address this complex problem, the National Kidney Foundation launched the End the Wait initiative, a roadmap to implementing tested and proven strategies that will effectively end the wait for kidney transplants in 10 years," said Paul.
