Bowl-A-Thon to Help a Quadriplegic

We are having a bowl-a-thon fundraiser on February 8, 2014 to help keep my dear friend Rhonda Reese out of a nursing home for as long as possible. Rhonda has been paralyzed from her shoulders down since a car accident in August of 1991 when she was 25. And at age 47, a nursing home is not the best place for her to continue living as best she can (for one reason, high-level quadriplegics like us require quite a bit of physical assistance, and nursing home staff typically do not have the time to be able to provide the care that a quadriplegic needs, even if they have the desire to).

If you would like to help either as a bowler or sponsor/donor, or by spreading the word to others… please see this webpage with all the relevant information, and let me know if you have any questions:

Thanks – and God bless!

About billgator97

I started this blog to highlight how wheelchair users, especially power wheelchair users, are being empowered through sport, in particular: dynamic wheelchair bowling. It's actually bowling that emulates the able-bodied bowling process, i.e. setup, then physically approach and release the ball upon stopping short of the foul line. I happen to be paralyzed from my neck down, and ventilator-dependent, yet I've actually bowled 24 legitimate games of 200 or better. I say that NOT to brag, but to show what is possible and make the point that ANY wheelchair user who can safely operate their chair, they can bowl (I helped invent a device that makes it possible). Please look around and feel free to ask any questions! Thanks and God bless!
