It is time again for the annual SungateKids Bowlathon.  Sunday 5 April I will again join many others and don my “funny shoes for a great cause.”  This will be the 7th year of the Bowlathon and my second year bowling along side many of my tw telecom coworkers.  This year the senior data and IP group members from t-dub (myself included) are joining up with some Juniper employees and fielding two teams; “Juniper Creek” and the “Juniper Turkeys.”

Why are we doing this?  Well, SungateKids explains it quite well on their site:

You’re raising funds to help victims of child abuse.

SungateKids relies heavily on funds raised by our special events.  We host a number of events throughout the year ranging from our Bowl-a-thon to our “For the Children” Gala.  Please consider supporting us through your attendance at one or more of our events.  We promise you a good time … while supporting a worthy cause.

SungateKids provides comprehensive investigation and support services to victims of child abuse.

SungateKids is a Colorado based 501c3 nonprofit agency serving Colorado’s 18th Judicial District which includes Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert, and Lincoln Counties.

SungateKids offers a new way of serving abused children through a comprehensive approach to services for victims and their families. These programs are designed by professionals and volunteers responding to the needs of our communities.   We stress coordination of investigation and intervention services by bringing together professionals and agencies as a multidisciplinary team to create a child-focused approach to child abuse cases.   We are national leaders in providing forensic interviews to child victims of crime.

Our goal is to ensure that children are not revictimized by the very system designed to protect them.

If you are going to be in the south Denver area the first Sunday of April and would like to participate, you can create a team and bowl along side us.  If you want to lend some support but can not attend, please consider making a donation.
