Bowl-A-Thon to benefit Huntington’s Disease

Rockford, Ill.- The Rockford IceHogs, proud members of the American Hockey League and top affiliate of the Chicago Blackhawks, announced on Wednesday that they are hosting a Bowl-A-Thon on Sunday, March 21 from 2-5 p.m. at Cherry Bowl in Cherry Valley.  The event is sponsored by the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford and WTVO-TV channel 17.

The IceHogs Bowl-A-Thon will benefit Huntington’s Disease and all proceeds from the benefit will go to the Huntington’s Disease Clinic that is located at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford.

“Huntington’s Disease has affected me and my family as my dad and brother both have it,” said IceHogs captain Jake Dowell. “Any way to raise awareness and help find a cure for it is great. I appreciate the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford helping us with this benefit and hopefully we can raise a lot of money for their new Huntington’s Disease Clinic.”

Registration is $40 per bowler or $150 per team of four. Fans can sign up for the IceHogs Bowl-A-Thon at any IceHogs home game at the Rockford MetroCentre at the U.S. Cellular Fan Zone, by calling Nate Haeni at the IceHogs office at (815) 847-6381 or by downloading the entry form here and faxing it to the IceHogs office at (815) 963-0974.

Plus, the first 100 bowlers, or 25 teams, to register will be guaranteed to be matched up with an IceHogs player or coach.  The deadline to register is Friday, March 12 at 5 p.m.
