Rhonda's Bowl-A-Thon Results

Rhonda's bowl-a-thon went well, overall. I did not bowl particularly well for me (my highest of three games was 134) but all things considered, our collective efforts should result in significant help for Rhonda, which was the goal. We raised a significant amount of money, and perhaps even more importantly, the act of raising awareness resulted in two strong leads for potentially helping Rhonda get more care covered (maybe even 24/7, although I don't want to jinx it).

I won't make excuses, but bowling in this chair is significantly different than what I did regularly for more than the previous 10 years, and apparently I'm still not used to it. My three scores were 126, 124, and 134. The bowling star of the show was my fellow Quad Squad bowler, Lilian, who started with a 164 in her first game, and topped it with a 169 in her third.

Much to her chagrin, Rhonda was unable to attend her own bowl-a-thon, due to being hospitalized with pneumonia since March 13. But she seems to be getting better, as she was able to get in her chair for about four hours on Friday, and rumor has it, she may get discharged relatively soon – PTL.

I think everyone in attendance felt good about helping Rhonda, and I thank everyone who has for doing so.

May God bless us all!
