Bowl-A-Thon for Junior Achievement

The cold temperatures had a lot of folks getting some indoor exercise Saturday.

The 30th annual Junior Achievement Bowl-A-Thon rolled into Miller Time in Davenport.

The staff from Adams Elementary joined in the fun to help raise funds for the program.

Junior Achievement helps prepare students for the workplace at no cost to the district and the organization puts on fun events to keep the program running.

“You can certainly have fun while you are raising money and those teachers are the ones watching what we’re going while we are in their classrooms and they are very happy to have us there and so I think this is their way of giving back,” said Barbara VanHorst, who’s the president of the organization.

More than 1,500 people bowled and more than $300,000 in funds was raised.
