For the third consecutive year, Bowl for the Cure hosted an essay contest that gave four lucky women a trip of a lifetime. From Nov. 11 - Dec. 16, 2015, individuals could enter by sharing their personal breast cancer story or by sharing how they’re involved in the fight against breast cancer. The four winners were announced in January 2016 and they were Annissa Grooms of Manchester, Ohio; Marisol Guerrero of Rosenberg, Texas; Joyce Harris of Kokomo, Indiana; and Katie Pogue of Saginaw, Texas. These four women traveled to Dallas for a tour of the Komen headquarters, a bowling lesson from Team USA coaching staff and a tour of the International Bowling Campus. They also received a trip to Las Vegas, Nev. to participate in the 2016 USBC Women’s Championships and more. More information about the winners and their experience is available here.

While we’re proud of our work that we do at the national level, it’s really the efforts and enthusiasm of bowlers across the country that make Bowl for the Cure what it is today. Together, we are working to accomplish a vision that we all share: a world without breast cancer.
