MDA Bowl-A-Thon continues strong tradition in Oshkosh

OSHKOSH – People laced up their bowling shoes in Oshkosh for a good cause Sunday.

It’s all part of the 7th annual Oshkosh MDA Bowl-A-Thon.

All of the money raised will go to kids in Northeast Wisconsin affected by muscular dystrophy.

New this year – more raffle prizes. Five thousand dollars worth of prizes to be exact.

The event’s organizer says the game with a goal continues to gain popularity.

“We’ve grown every single year and I’m excited. It’s something I’m going to do for as long as I possibly can, even though I don’t live in Oshkosh. I live in Madison, but with the help of our volunteers and the support of everybody, this event is truly one of a kind,” said Eric Salzwedel.

Last year, the event raised more than $12 thousand.

Organizers say this year they hope to raise at least $18 thousand.
