REGISTER TO BOWL

There are dozens of events across the country. See if there's a bowl-a-thon (or miniature golf-a-thon) near you. Register to bowl or check out the cities menu to find a Bowl-a-thon near you.

CAN'T BOWL IN PERSON?

If you live in a town without a Bowl-a-thon, you can join the Virtual Bowl-a-thon. And if you're really eager to lace up those rental shoes, you can even take your game from the virtual realm to an actual bowling alley.

SEE WHO'S PARTICIPATING

Will the Ova-Achievers win this year? From the Misoproselytizers and Ova Achievers, Bowl-a-thon participants come up with the most brilliant and punny teams.

WHAT IS THE BOWL-A-THON?

The National Abortion Access Bowl-a-Thon is a nationwide series of local events that allow community members (you!) to captain your own bowling teams, participate in a kickass national event - and raise money to help women and girls pay for abortions they couldn't otherwise afford.

SPOTLIGHT ON...

Bowl-a-Thon brings out the best in our bowlers, and we want to show you off! Each Tuesday, we'll pick one amazing page to spotlight here and on the front page of the NNAF website.

 Our page of the week is ANOTHER TEXAN, this one nominated by multiple people. Rachel is bowling with Bidi Bidi Bowlathon in Houston. She was nominated for her enthusiasm online, and for bringing dozens of new supporters to abortion funding over the past month. People have noticed her hustle and love it! And her gift game is excellent. Congrats to Rachel. Send her some love, and some dollars, and let's finish Bowl-a-Thon strong!


Are you cheering on someone with an exceptionally creative page? Are you particularly proud of the gif set you curated? Which wordsmith came up with the best pun-tastic name? Maybe you saw a compelling story you think should be required reading.

Nominate your favorite bowler here, and give generously to each week's winner!

OUR AWESOME ABORTION FUNDS

WHY WE BOWL

Funds hear firsthand how hard it can be to pay for an abortion. We're bowling to raise money to help those in need today, and we're committed to building a more just world where everyone, regardless of income, can get all of the care they need without stigma or shaming.
