Project 24: A Marathon for Inclusion in Golf

Disabled Military Veterans benefit at Wescott Golf through PGA partnership

The clock is ticking as eight dedicated men gear up for an extraordinary challenge in Lofoten, Norway.

On June 20th, they will embark on a 24-hour golf marathon, aiming to raise at least £24,000 for an inspiring cause—providing more wheelchair users with the opportunity to play golf.


This ambitious event, dubbed Project 24, underscores a vital mission: to raise awareness about disability and the transformative power of sports.

The Challenge Ahead

These brave souls will tee off at midday, pushing their physical and mental limits to play golf non-stop for 24 hours.

Their goal? To raise funds for a Paragolfer, an innovative machine that allows wheelchair users to play golf standing up.

This piece of equipment is more than just a tool; it’s a gateway to freedom and joy for many who thought they could never stand on a golf course again.


Ayuna Berbidaeva: A Testament to the Paragolfer’s Impact

Ayuna Berbidaeva knows firsthand the life-changing impact of the Paragolfer. Introduced to golf through The Golf Trust last year, Ayuna had not stood up for over two years.

“Discovering the Paragolfer was life-changing for me. I had never played golf before, and I hadn’t stood up for over two years! I love playing golf so much, and the joy it brings me is something I wish more wheelchair users could experience.”

“I wish Cae and the team all the very best of luck with their incredible challenge,” she shares.

A United Effort

The challenge has garnered significant support, including a new team member, Rory MacFaden of Reflo.

His company will supply the team’s kit, ensuring they look sharp while making their mark.

As the marathon unfolds, live challenges and exciting announcements will keep supporters engaged via social media @thegolftrust.

Cae Menai-Davis, the founder of The Golf Trust, is optimistic yet realistic about the demanding journey ahead.

“This sounds like a lot of fun, but it is going to be tough,” he admits.

“Thanks to the generosity of several sponsors, golfers, and Paragolfer users, we’re already on our way to raising enough money for one Paragolfer, but I hope that people will get behind us once the golf is underway.”

“Every penny we raise will make a massive difference and help us give more wheelchair users access to the sport.”

The Broader Impact

In the UK, over 16 million residents—24% of the population—have a disability, with many lacking access to recreational sports.

Golf, however, has proven to be a valuable outlet for physical activity and social interaction.

By supporting Project 24, donors will directly contribute to expanding this access, making the sport more inclusive and enjoyable for everyone.
