Kathleen McDonald and Graeme McGill’s son Tyler was born with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia, which occurs in around one in 2,500 births, in April and, tragically, survived only a few weeks.
David said: “When Tyler sadly passed away from this condition it was a heartbreaking experience for my family.
“Tyler showed the same attributes as my little sister Kathleen in staying strong and putting on a brave face throughout what must have been an unthinkable experience.
“I never got a chance to take the wee man for a round of footgolf, but in his memory he will allow others to enjoy a fun round of the best sport in the world and raise money for a worthy cause.“
Footgolf is normally played in groups of five, following the same rules as golf, except using a football instead of a golf ball, and the ball is kicked rather than struck with a club, working towards a 21-inch “cup” in place of the usual hole.
Tyler’s Footgolf CDH Charity Event takes place at Palacerigg Driving Range in Cumbernauld on Sunday, August 7, and the cost is £15 for adults, £10 for children and £2 ball hire.
There will be prizes to be won on the course as well as raffles, bouncy castles, face painting and more.
