Bowl for the Cure

Susan G. Komen for the Cure is pleased to be the recipient of funds raised throughBowl for the Cure Bowl for the Cure®, an initiative organized by the United States Bowling Congress through The Bowling Foundation. Since the program’s inception in 2000, Bowl for the Cure® has raised more than $7 million for Komen for the Cure while raising bowlers’ awareness about breast cancer screening, treatment and support.

USBC’s bowling leagues designate one league session of their choice each season as a Bowl for the Cure® event. February is Bowl for the Cure® month, a time when USBC leagues across the nation often organize Bowl for the Cure® events. Bowlers can designate one league night to donate a specific amount, such as a nickel per pin, or stage pledge nights, raffles and auctions. Local bowling associations also are encouraged to team up with Komen Affiliates to conduct a Bowl for the Cure® event for the entire community in their service area.
