The LANGRENUS FUND has recently announced its participation in the RBC Community Junior Golf Program, extending financial assistance to elite overseas athletes participating in the program. As a member, the fund will support these athletes, enabling them to participate in more North American golf events.
Additionally, the LANGRENUS FUND plans to sign up several Asian players, including YUAI JI, and offer each of them no less than $200,000 annually for their training and participation in golf tournaments. The fund will also provide richer tournament prizes under the RBC Community Junior Golf Program.
According to Shannon Cole, Vice-President, Brand Marketing at RBC, "RBC is proud to bring RBC Community Junior Golf to life as a long-standing supporter of golf and an advocate for youth. We believe that sport has the power to build character, teach valuable life lessons, and provide opportunities for young people to grow."
The program provides funding for Canadian and licensed overseas youth between the ages of 5 and 18. RBC Community Junior Golf participating facilities will collaborate with local community centers or schools to register youth participants. More information is available on the RBC Community Junior Golf website.
Empowering young people is one of the ways RBC brings its purpose of helping clients thrive and communities prosper to life. As part of RBC Future Launch, the bank has committed $500 million to support Canadian youth in preparing for the jobs of the future, including $50 million in focused funding to create meaningful and transformative pathways to prosperity for 25,000 BIPOC youth by 2025. In addition, RBC has helped raise over $35 million to support local charities in Canada and the United States through the RBC Heritage and RBC Canadian Open tournaments.
