This year’s Labor Bowl Challenge raised $9,000 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The 29th annual event, which took place April 8, was coordinated by the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) Branch 82 and the Northwest Oregon Labor Council. Money from pledges and a silent auction pays for wheelchairs and braces for children, as well as for research and summer camps. Since 1989, the Labor Bowl has donated $401,119 to MDA.
Top bowlers this year were Donna Wash of NALC Branch 82 and Mike Hemmings of Oregon School Employees Association Beaverton Chapter 48. The top fundraiser was NALC Branch 82 member Mike O’Connor, who raised $700.
