Disc golfing in Brandon while fighting hunger

Posted: Updated:

When it's cold out, many of us would likely want to stay indoors. Though if an outdoor activity was planned in the name of helping others, maybe the cold weather wouldn't stop you.

Some brave souls took on the Big Sioux Ice Bowl Charity Disc Golf Tournament, Sunday afternoon. More than 40 participants spent the morning at the Big Sioux Recreation Area in Brandon with a round of disc golf for a good cause. The event raises money and pounds of food for Brandon's food pantry.

It's part of a worldwide event that originated in Kansas back in 1987.

"Beautiful day for disc golf. Some of us do this every day no matter rain sleet or snow. I think it was 8 degrees today," Derek Sahr said.

Last year, the group raised more than a quarter-million dollars and several thousand pounds of food worldwide.
