The First Annual Adam Rantz Memorial Golf Outing
Fri, May 19, 2017, 12:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
Welcome to the registration page for the Adam Rantz Memorial Outing
Ethan's motivation for hosting this golf event is driven by his love for his late brother and the pain he suffered during his battle with Eosinophilic Faciitis, (EF). Ethan recalls his brother's inability to bend his hands at the wrist and the swelling in his legs that made it difficult for him to walk at times. The pain Adam endured was painful to watch. Tragically, Adam suffered a massive heart attack on June 1st, 2016 at he young age of 32. Ethan has made it his goal to honor his bother Adam's life by raising awareness and money to help fund research for a cure for those suffering from eosinophil related diseases.

About EF and APFED
EF is characterized by symmetrical skin induration and, in the acute stage, is marked by swelling (edema) and pitting of the extremities. Although swelling may be the presenting feature of eosinophilic fasciitis, with time hardening of the skin and the subcutaneous tissue occur, such that these tissues are firm with a “woody” texture. The skin may also appear irregular and is described as resembling the skin of an orange (peau d’orange).
Most commonly EF involves the extremities, both arms and legs, and the fingers, feet and face are spared. Sparing of these sites serves to distinguish EF from scleroderma where finger involvement is often one of the first signs. Patients with long-standing EF may develop joint contractures (loss of joint motion due to the hardening of the skin in areas adjacent to the joint) resulting in impaired mobility.
