Will Ferrell will once again host the annual Cancer For College Golf Classic in September.

Last year’s golf tournament raised over $200,000 for the charity, established by the actor’s friend Craig Pollard.

Cancer for College began with a business plan Pollard wrote up during senior year at University. It was established in 1993 to provide college scholarships to current and former cancer patients. In February 2006, Pollard himself was hospitalized when a bacterial blood infection forced doctors to put him in a sedated coma for 3 weeks. Consequent blood circulation problems led to the amputation of both legs below the knees. After this ordeal, Pollard extended the scholarships to include amputees.

The charity will hold its 17th annual Golf Classic on September 24 at the Rancho Bernardo Inn. Find out more here.
