ND BOWLING GRAPHIC 16

The Notre Dame Chapter of Uplifting Athletes will hold its annual community bowling event on Sunday, June 12.

This will be the third consecutive year the Notre Dame Chapter is holding this event to support its mission of using college football as a platform to inspire the rare disease community with hope through the power of sport.

Once again the Notre Dame Chapter bowling event will take place at the Strikes & Spares Event Center in Mishawaka, Indiana from 10 a.m. until Noon.

Fans of the Fighting Irish will have the opportunity to bowl with members of the football student-athlete led Notre Dame Chapter for an hour.

Each registrant will hit the lanes for an hour with three other registrants and two members of the Notre Dame Chapter. The cost for registration is $30 and includes personal interaction and photo opportunities with the Fighting Irish players and Notre Dame Chapter members in attendance.

Fans are encouraged to come out and support this event and the Notre Dame Chapter as it helps bring the vision of Uplifting Athletes to life; which is to empower people to take action against rare diseases and inspires the medical community to find cures.

The challenges faced by the rare disease community are bigger than any one individual, team or organization can tackle alone. The grassroots effort of the Notre Dame Chapter, along with a nationwide network of teams, is uniquely positioned to educate and engage the local community and shine a spotlight on rare diseases.

The Notre Dame Chapter started tackling rare diseases in 2012 when it joined Uplifting Athletes. The student-athlete led Notre Dame Chapter serves the rare disease community in honor of rare disease patient Sam Grewe.

Diagnosed with the rare disease osteosarcoma in 2011 as a teenager, Grewe is a huge Irish fan and the Notre Dame football program formed a close relationship with Grewe as he battled his rare disease.

Please consider helping the Notre Dame Chapter of Uplifting Athletes tackle rare diseases.
