Bowling For Sudan is a fundraising event to provide educational assistance to over 25,000 children who have fled a brutal war in Sudan’s Nuba Mountains. Fledgling schools in refugee camps have been started by people from the Nuba Mountains, but all of them are underfunded, under-resourced, and overwhelmed with growing needs.
Funds raised will go directly to support these schools. Learn more here »
How To Participate
This event takes place on July 18, 2015 from 5:30-8:00PM. A maximum of eight teams with five members each will compete against one another for two trophies:
- Best Fundraising Team (who raises the most money)
- Best Bowling Team (who has the highest overall pin-fall)
Each team gets their own lane and registers each player for two rounds. The team with the highest overall pin-fall from the combined two games wins!
To become a team captain, contact Zan Roach at zroach [at] operationbrokensilence [dot] org.
As a team captain, you are responsible for recruiting your four team members and ensuring your team exceeds its $2,500 fundraising goal! Only teams that have a registered team captain will be eligible to compete.
Wait, What's Happening In Sudan?
Since 2011, the government of Sudan has waged a brutal war against the people living in the country's Nuba Mountains. Schools, clinics, and markets are systematically bombed on a daily basis. Hundreds of thousands of people have been forced to flee their homes.
Over 25,000 children have fled to the safety of refugee camps. Fledgling schools in these camps have been started by local partners, but all of them are underfunded, under-resourced, and overwhelmed with growing needs. Operation Broken Silence began the Endure Campaign in December of 2014 to provide support and created a stunning documentary film about these children.
