Help Support your fellow YPG members who are fundraising for the Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation's 4th Annual YPG Bowl-a-thon by donating $30 to sponsor a young adult brain tumor survivor to play on a team.

Tickets to play at the Bowl-a-Thon are $30 each, but we want to allow a survivor to join their own team.

If you cannot make it to the event, but still want to help out, consider sponsoring a survivor by donating $30 here!

 In recent years, YPG has raised over $80,000 through events like the Bowl-a-Thon that supported sending survivors to the Young Adult Heads Up Conference (HUC) at Camp Mak-a-Dream. This year, on May 3rd   2012, we will be holding our 4th Annual Bowl-a-Thon. For more details on the event, please check out our Facebook Page. If you are interested in participating in the fundraiser please email

Any donation amount, even $5, will get us closer to our target and help use sponsor 20 survivors.


•          11 families across America will learn that their child has a brain or spinal cord tumor

•          A mother will grieve that her instincts about her child’s health were right.

•          A father will allow himself to cry, but only alone in the shower.

•          3 families across America will mourn the loss of their child to a brain or spinal cord tumor

•          Friends, family and community will try to make sense of an untimely death and the unfulfilled promise of a life.

•          6 families across America will transition to survivorship.

•          A mother will be too exhausted from providing constant care to her child to simply write checks to pay bills.

•          A father will again adapt his day, family and life to a new definition of normal, unlike any he had previously envisioned.

•          A survivor on the brink of adulthood will wonder if he’ll ever date, marry or have a family.

Today, Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation will be there with insight, support, respite and hope.

Today, we invite you to join us!
