Blog - Why Bowl? Top 6 Reasons.

Calling all bowlers! Our Bowl-A-Thons are coming up October 19-22! We are so excited to be having the Lawrence and Topeka events, and we want you to join us.

How it works - until October 12, you can register your team! We make it SUPER easy for you - it can be done online (click HERE for Lawrence, HERE for Topeka). THEN you use creative ways to raise funds and awareness for Junior Achievement of Kansas! Hitting certain goals and levels can qualify you for bigger and better prizes, and it all culminates in your team bowling in one of our seven sessions on Bowl-A-Thon weekend. 

We know that at this point in the blog, you've clicked on our registration and good to go becuase you're so excited but just in case - here's six reasons you should start a Bowl-A-Thon team! 

  1. It's easy! We made it as simple as possible to sign up, and we provide you with resources and tools to help you fundraise. 
  2. The celebration! On Bowl-A-Thon weekend, we make it a true celebration! There will be prizes, themed bowling session (hello cyber bowling!), food, drinks, and fun! 
  3. Brand awareness! If you're bowling on behalf of your company, it's great brand awareness for them! Wear logo-ed T-shirts, and let your friends know that your workplace sponsors a good cause. 
  4. Fundraising activities! There a reason that the word FUN is in FUNdraising! Have a taco or ice cream bar at your workplace, be courageous and take dares for donations, have a jeans day at your office...the possibilities are endless and most importantly, can be so much fun.
  5. Superhero theme! Our teams, sponsors, and bowlers are quite literally being superheroes to our Kansas kids, and we take that to the Nth degree by having superhero cutous, capes, and more at our events to keep in line with the superhero theme! Bonus points if you dress in costume! 
  6. It supports JA! Our Bowl-A-Thons are our second largest fundraisers for our Lawrence and Topeka areas. Becuase of YOU - our bowlers and supporters, we're able to provide programs to over 800 classes and over 17,000 students in the Topeka and Lawrence areas. We could not do it without you! 

There you have! Six reasons to start a team for one of this year's Bowl-A-Thons!
