Fundació ASPACE, an organisation whose purpose is to maximise the capacities of people with Cerebral Palsy in Mallorca, will be the Official Charity of the Rolex Challenge Tour Grand Final supported by The R&A.

The Road to Mallorca season finale gets underway at T Golf & Country Club, Mallorca, from November 4-7 as the top 45 players on the Rankings compete for one of 20 European Tour cards for the 2022 season. Michael Hoey is Ireland’s sole representative in Mallorca and finds himself in 36th place on the money-list, trailing more than 20,000 points behind the all-important 20th place ahead of the bumper €450,000 event.

The Rolex Challenge Tour Grand Final will donate funds raised from a charity auction and other fundraising games after the pre-tournament Pro-Am events to Fundació ASPACE in order to enable them to increase their offering and support to people with Cerebral Palsy.

Fundació ASPACE work with people with Cerebral Palsy and related disabilities in their physical, affective, cognitive and psychosocial aspects, compensating and optimizing those that can affect the development and learning processes through a comprehensive treatment and education approach to access a greater school, social and work integration.

Cerebral palsy is a disability caused by an injury to the brain that occurs during pregnancy, childbirth or during the first years of a child’s life and generally entails a physical disability to a greater or lesser degree, but it can also be accompanied by a sensory and/or intellectual disability.
