About Ian Rinken
At the age of 3, Ian Rinken teed off against his first opponent: cancer. During and after his 38-months of cancer treatment, Ian’s home-away-from-home became the Willow Run Golf Course. In and out of the hospital, weak from chemo, and unable do normal activities with other kids, Ian found an opportunity to be a kid on the golf course—chipping, putting, and playing with golfers at Willow Run. After Rinken’s successful rounds against cancer, he kept his eye on his next birdie. Now a freshman at SDSU, Ian is healthy and playing on the South Dakota State men's golf team. Ian is a wish kid and was granted his wish to go to Walt Disney World in 1999.
