The Deutsche Bank Championship returns to Norton at the end of the month, and fans interested in not only seeing the 100 best golfers, but also walking the TPC Boston course before those players do, will have the opportunity to make all that happen – while raising money for diabetes research, to boot.

The Covidien Wellness Walk, scheduled for Aug. 27 at 5:30 p.m., will allow participants a chance to walk the course’s front nine (in reverse order) just three days before the pros tee off in the second event of the Fed Ex Cup Playoffs. The walk covers 3.2 miles.

Participants who register prior to Aug. 21 will pay $25 for the walk – it’s $30 thereafter – and the best part for those interested in seeing the pros is that included with that registration fee is a good-any-one-day grounds ticket to the DBC. Also included as part of the package are 15 percent off a purchase at Marathon Sports and commemorative gifts (for the first 300 registrants).

“This event provides our fans with a unique opportunity to experience TPC Boston,” said tournament director Eric Baldwin, “and support a great cause on the eve of our Championship.”

All proceeds from the Wellness Walk go to Joslin Diabetes Center of Boston, by way of the Covidien CARES program. To see pictures of last year’s event, click here; and for more information, or to register, visit
