      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.
