    6-Year-Old Plays 100 Holes of Golf in Memory of Classmate Who Died

    Danny Nickerson, who has an inoperable brain tumor, asked for birthday cards for his 6th birthday

    A 6-year-old Massachusetts boy has raised $25,000 for cancer research by playing 100 holes of golf in one day in memory of a classmate who died of the disease.

    Ryan McGuire, of Foxboro, completed the golf marathon Wednesday at MGA Links at Mamantapett, a par-3 course in Norton.

    Ryan played the 100 holes in memory of his kindergarten buddy, Danny Nickerson, who died in April of a rare and inoperable form of pediatric brain cancer.

    He got the idea to play 100 holes of golf because his mother, Cheryl, is the program director of Golf Fights Cancer, a nonprofit organization that encourages golfers to play and raise money for cancer-related charities.

    Ryan tells The Sun Chronicle of Attleboro that he "just wanted to do it for Danny."
