MISHAWAKA — The Notre Dame chapter of Uplifting Athletes will hold its second-annual bowling event at 10 a.m., Sunday, May 4 at Strikes & Spares Event Center in Mishawaka.

Fans have an opportunity to bowl with current members of the Irish football team for an hour. Registrants will also get a photo opportunity with Notre Dame’s players.

“It’s a great time to interact with our fans and also generate awareness for a wonderful organization that helps raise money for rare diseases," senior Irish linebacker Joe Schmidt said in a release. "We look forward to building upon last year’s success."

Registration is $30 per person. Fans can also sponsor a bowling lane for $250. Proceeds from this event will go towards efforts of raising research funds for osteosarcoma.

Spaces for this event are limited. Contact with any questions or concerns.

Notre Dame’s chapter, spearheaded by Schmidt, raises money and awareness for osteosarcoma, a rare malignant bone cancer that affects children. It chose this cause in honor of Sam Grewe, a Northridge teen who was diagnosed with the rare condition in 2011, but has been cancer free for just over a year.
