Annandale Walgreens hosts bowling fundraiser for cancer research

The Annandale Walgreens invites the public to a bowling fundraiser at AMF Annandale Lanes Saturday, May 3, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., to raise money for the Ride to Conquer Cancer.

The Ride to Conquer is a two-day bike ride in the countryside around Washington, D.C., Sept. 13-14. Walgreens is hoping to raise enough money to send at least one person on the ride. Each rider needs to raise $2,500.

The funds support cancer research at the John’s Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, Sibley Memorial Hospital, and Suburban Hospital. A representative from Ride to Conquer will be at the bowling alley Saturday to talk about the organization and its impact on cancer research.

It’s $30 to participate in the event at the Annandale bowling alley. Walgreens has reserved 10 lanes, and there will be a raffle for baskets and other items that have been donated by the community. There is no need to register in advance; just show up and look for the Walgreens event.
