Val Skinner on the inspiration for The LIFE Event

Val Skinner, professional golfer and founder of the Val Skinner Foundation, sat with Steve Adubato on “One-on-One” to discuss how a fellow golfer who lost her battle with cancer inspired her to create the LIFE Event.

“I came to see if your golf game is any better,” Skinner jokingly says to Adubato. He then prompts her to discuss the LIFE Event.

The LIFE Event (LPGA Pros in the Fight to Eradicate Breast Cancer) mission is to continue to help eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease, while reaching out to a younger generation of women and providing them with information about the importance of early detection and healthy breast care practices.

“It’s the best women golfers in the world gathered,” she says. “It came out of our dear friend Heather Farr,” who lost her battle with breast cancer at 28.
