National Abortion Access Bowl-a-Thon

What do bowling and abortion access have in common? The National Abortion Access Bowl-a-Thon, of course! And each spring, we aim to strike!

For the 7th year in a row, abortion funds from across the country raise money to make reproductive rights a reality for women who can't afford to pay for an abortion—and this year we plan to break the fundraising records!

What is the Bowl-a-Thon? 
The 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.

When is the Bowl-a-Thon?

Throughout the month of April. Find an event in your community, recruit your team, choose a brilliant and punny team name, and start fundraising -- registration is open now!

  • Team Names: From Ruth Bowler Ginsburg and Ova Achievers to Public Cervix Announcement and New Orleans' Preaux Choice, Bowl-a-Thon participants come up with the most brilliant and punny teams! Check out the 2016 roster here.
