Event Information

Friends in Motion 2016 is Sold Out! Thank you to all of our teams for their ongoing support!

 

Make a difference and help people with disabilities by putting your Friends in Motion!

Are you ready to warm up your twinkle toes?!

The 2016 Friends in Motion: Bowl-A-Thon is upon us! Join Between Friends as we couple together a favorite pastime of many of our participants with a great opportunity for Calgary teams to come together to raise funds for Between Friends. Teams can represent corporations, unions, churches, families or just a group of like-minded individuals!

Teams of 4 or 5 will register and be paired with a Between Friends Participant – their Bowling Champion! They will then compete for highest score in this challenging and fun tournament. Teams are encouraged to dress in costume, come up with a unique team name and of course raise funds for a great cause!

Teams are encouraged to set a fundraising goal and challenge their friends, family and colleagues to help them send kids to camp or adults on adventures. Every dollar raised translates into an unforgettable summer experience for a person with a disability. We ask teams to commit to raising a minimum of $1,000 in order to participate.

The money you raise will support children and adults with disabilities, whose participation in Camp Bonaventure and Adventurers has a significant impact on their quality of life.

The individual cost of 2 weeks at day camp for a child or a week-long trip out of town for one of our adults is approximately $1,000. Challenge your friends, colleagues, and family to sponsor an additional camp session or an out of town trip!

There are great prizes for best costume, highest score, best team name and many more!
