Bowlin' For Colon Helps Local Families

Posted: Updated:

Family and friends set high scores and gave high donations Saturday for families in need of a helping hand.

The annual Bowlin' for Colon event helps raise money for 'Lend A Hand.'

The program helps families who are experiencing a medical crisis pay their bills, doctors appointments, and medications.

Saturday Chip Johnson's family bowled through the day, even after he lost his battle earlier this week to colon cancer. The money they helped raised today is going to other families in need in the community.

"It can sometimes be a downwards spiral financially," says Lend A Hand Program Director Jeane Peinovich, "and so events like this that help led a hand help more families are really a great way for us to rally together and help our neighbors."

This year they raised over $10,000! That will be matched by the Dakota Medical Foundation.
