The third annual Lynx Links for Cancer is being held at Maple River Golf Club in Mapleton.

Lynx Logistics and Lynx Xpress hosts the event.

The events proceeds will go to the family of Justin Williams, who has been battling cancer for three years, to help with medical expenses.

The golfers, including Sasha Campbell, also have their own reasons for coming.

"We just decided to do this tournament my grandma, her mom, is a cancer survivor. She's going through lung cancer. So this event is to raise money for cancer and a couple of my Aflac co–workers asked me to do it," says Campbell.

Local businesses donated prizes for competitions held alongside the main tournament such as longest putt and longest drive.
