Bowl-a-Thon is back, better than ever in 2013!

1 - 3 p.m.
It's that time of year again: we're bowling for abortion access in North Carolina!
Thanks to all who participated in our inaugural event last year - y'all were so awesome the Carolina Abortion Fund won the award for BEST Bowl-a-Thon of 2012 from the National Network of Abortion Funds! Most importantly, the money raised from last year's Bowl-a-Thon has helped more than 100 North Carolina women - and counting - pay for their medical bills over the past year.
Did you know more than 10 times the number of women call our abortion fund hotline each week than we can help at our current budget? We're proud of the number of individual grants we've been able to provide this year, but we know you can help us raise even more money for low-income women and girls in North Carolina - and, naturally, you'll have an awesome time bringing back the Bowl-a-Thon, even bigger and better than before!
Here's how to get started:
We need awesome team captains, bowlers and, of course, fans and supporters to make the Bowl-a-Thon a success! Click on the REGISTER button at the top of the page to get started.
You’ll have three options: Start a Team, Join a Team, or Individual Participation. Fill out the fields on the page you choose, including your team and individual fundraising goals. If you feel confident in your ability to recruit and motivate a group of your friends to raise a ton a money, click Start a Team. If one of those enthusiastic team captains recruited you, click Join a Team. Select your team name from the drop-down menu and consider yourself a bowler! If you're a "free agent," sign up under Individual Participation, and we'll connect you with a team.
This year, you'll earn points for raising money, recruiting friends, spreading the word via social media and even just logging into your fundraising site. Points = prizes, and we love some healthy competition, so don't forget to get started by telling the whole world you've launched or joined a team on Facebook

About the Carolina Abortion Fund:
Founded in 2011, the Carolina Abortion Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that helps women who are seeking an abortion but cannot afford the full cost. We believe that a woman's income should not limit her ability to make her own reproductive decisions. All donations to the Carolina Abortion Fund (including donations to the Bowl-a-Thon) are 100% tax-deductible.
