Strike for Vets, Orlando

Strike for Vets is a bowling fundraiser to help some of the most wounded warriors. This is actually the second Strike for Vets event (the inaugural was held last October in Tampa) and is this Sunday, May 22, in Orlando.

Daniel Bolan is a high-school-aged Eagle Scout and very accomplished bowler, and Strike for Vets is his vision to help soldiers who have sacrificed much for our freedom. He met a now retired Special Forces Green Beret named Romy Camargo, who happens to be a quadriplegic after being injured in combat.

Romy and his wife Gaby started a nonprofit organization that operates a spinal cord injury recovery center called Stay in Step, where injured veterans and nonveterans can rehab in Tampa.

I have the honor of bowling with Daniel and Romy this coming Sunday.

It’s not too late to sign up your team, or make a donation.

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!
