September 28, 2023

In a celebration of strength, resilience, and triumph over adversity, adaptive athletes will come together for the 7th Annual Adaptive Bowl-A-Thon Fundraiser hosted by the Memorial Foundation. This inspiring Event will take place on Sunday, October 1st, 2023, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at SpareZ Bowling, located at 5325 South University Drive, Davie, Florida 33328.

The Adaptive Bowl-A-Thon isn't just another bowling tournament; it's a testament to the indomitable human spirit. Adaptive athletes, who have faced and conquered physical disabilities and hardships, will join hands with their therapists, Memorial Healthcare System representatives, friends, and family members for a day of camaraderie and competition. The event promises not only a thrilling contest but also the chance to win trophies and gain well-deserved recognition.

Adaptive athletes have not only overcome physical disabilities but have excelled in various sports, from water aerobics to wheelchair basketball. This event is their moment to shine, and their stories of triumph will inspire all of us, says Sarah Thompson, a Spokesperson for the Memorial Foundation.

The Adaptive Bowl-A-Thon serves as a platform for these athletes to share their personal journeys of resilience and how the Memorial Sports and Recreation Program has played a pivotal role in transforming their lives. Program leaders and organizers will also provide insights into this unique Fundraising Event and its far-reaching impact on patients and families in South Florida.

In the past year, the proceeds from the previous bowl-a-thon have been instrumental in providing access, transportation, covering entry fees, and securing sponsorships for adaptive athletes participating in an array of activities, including water aerobics, chair yoga, scuba diving, wheelchair basketball, and tennis. This support has not only made these activities accessible but has also facilitated the integration of adaptive sports into the lives of these extraordinary individuals.

The venue for this remarkable event is SpareZ Bowling, a place where strikes and spares will take a backseat to the unwavering spirit of the athletes who will grace the lanes.
