Project #6: Bowl-a-thon for the Greater YMCA’s Strong Kids’ Campaign
On February 11, 2011, the KMAZ bowling team participated in the YMCA Bowl-a-thon and raised $600 for the Greater Wichita YMCA’s annual Strong Kids’ Campaign. KMAZ first joined the cause in January with its participation in the 8thAnnual Frosty 5k. The bowling event better served a few of those souls who wanted to support the program but could not bear the sub-freezing degree weather of the Frosty 5k. The annual Strong Kids’ campaign raises funds for the YMCA’s numerous programs that benefit low income families in the Wichita community including free water safety classes, job preparatory training, early learning child care centers, summer day camps, need-based program scholarships and before and after school programs. An estimated 65,000 kids and adults will receive free or assisted programs this year made possible with funds raised from the Strong Kids’ Campaign.
