Local Bowlers Become Pink Hero's
Sullivan County bowlers along with keglers nationwide are participating in the October National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Bowl for the Cure.
The campaign this year has launched a new Bowl Pink theme to recognize those in the bowling community who have supported the fight against breast cancer.
Bowl for the Cure, a year-round fundraising initiative sponsored by the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) in partnership with Susan G. Komen, has made total contributions of more than $11 million to Susan G. Komen since 2000.
The Bowl Pink Hero campaign will focus on showcasing the work of associations, leagues, bowling centers and individuals who are doing more to support Bowl for the Cure and raise awareness about breast cancer.
USBC Executive Director Chad Murphy pointed out that "the success of Bowl for the Cure is because of our bowlers and associations across the country. They are the ones who put together the tournaments, silent auctions and other fundraisers, and it is because of their hard work and generosity that Bowl for the Cure is able to raise awareness and contribute to the fight against breast cancer.
For the month of October, Bowl for the Cure has asked associations to start the Bowl Pink challenge and st a goal of raising $500 in honor of Bowl for the Cure.
Donations can be mailed to USBC or sent online at BOWL.com/BFTC.
