CLEARWATER – The first ever “Playing 4 Life” golf tournament will raise money to research Alport Syndrome, a rare kidney disease.

It was organized by  Ryan Landwehr, who received two live kidney transplants in his fight against the syndrome and now wants to give back.

The tournament is Friday at Eagle Trace Golf Club in Clearwater beginning at 1:00 p.m. Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the Alport Syndrome Foundation.

It’s $70 to register individually, or $280 for a group of four – including 18 holes, a cart, prizes and dinner.

Landwehr says this event not only supports the fight against Alport Syndrome, but hopes to raise awareness of the lifesaving value of organ donation.
