Annual Union Bowl Challenge benefiting the Muscular Dystrophy Association happening March 10

WATERLOO, Iowa (KWWL) – Labor unions from Waterloo and Cedar Rapids are preparing for the 37th Annual Union Bowl Challenge.  Happening March 10, the event benefits the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Iowa.

Labor unions spend the day bowling but, leading up to the event, work to raise money in a fun, friendly competition between the two cities of Waterloo and Cedar Rapids.  Last year, they raised over
$30,000 combined.

The MDA of Iowa serves 1,700 individuals living with muscle-disease.

“Many MDA families in Blackhawk and Linn counties are faced with the daily challenges
brought on by the effects of diseases like muscular dystrophy, ALS, and spinal muscular
atrophy. Everyday freedoms like walking, talking and even breathing can be taken away by
these muscle-debilitating diseases,” said Development Coordinator, Molly Zmudka. “But with
support from our generous Union Bowl participants, we can help change that by raising critical
funds and awareness.”

Funds raised go toward making the MDA Summer Camp at Camp Courageous possible, and also toward groundbreaking research, life-enhancing programs, and care at the MDA Care Center at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City.
