All bowlers invited to support Bowl for the Cure®
Local bowlers are expected to knock down pins to knock out breast cancer at the fourth annual Bowl for the Cure® bowling tournament to be held on Sunday, March 27.
A nine-pin no-tap tournament will be held at Cornhusker Lanes located at 900 E. 1st St. in Ogallala. Bowling begins at 1 p.m.
This year, local bowlers hope to raise money to contribute to Bowl for the Cure®, a year-round fundraising and awareness initiative organized by the United States Bowling Congress in support of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
Bowlers around the U.S. organize tournament, bowl-a-thons, raffles, auctions and more each year to support Bowls for the Cure®. Last year, Ogallala bowlers raised over $500 for the cause.
To participate in the tournament or to make a contribution to Bowl for the Cure®, contact Cornhusker Lanes at 308-284-4255 or Jon Forney at 308-352-8022.
Participants do not need to be regular bowlers for the event. All that is needed is the desire to fight breast cancer and have fun in the process.
Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever.
In 1982, that promise became the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement.
Today, Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures.
Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, the organization has invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill the promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world. For more information about
