The 10th annual Crusade Fore a Cure girls golf tournament is scheduled for Monday at Maple Bluff Country Club.

The event helps raise funds to support the Women’s Health and UW Carbone Cancer Center.

The event has raised $97,824 so far.

Madison Edgewood is the host. Edgewood girls golf coach Peggy Gierhart and assistant Betsy Zadra partnered with the Komen Foundation in 2010 and started the high school fundraiser tournament at Maple Bluff.

This is the second year the event is partnering with UW Carbone Cancer Center. Last year, the girls raised more than $18,000. The main focus is to support Women’s Health, which supports research into breast cancer and all gynecological cancers, according to event information. 

Lunch, fundraising stories and a guest speaker, Samantha Mergen, are scheduled from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday.
