Strikers event aids diabetes research


Strikers Bowling Center in Vevay invites everyone to participate in its upcoming ‘Bowl for Charity’ event.

The event will benefit King’s Daughters’ Health Diabetes Care Center as part of National Diabetes Awareness Month.

This is the second annual Diabetes Awareness Day of Bowling at Strikers, and it will take place on Saturday, November 11th. Doors open at 2 p.m. and the event will run until midnight. Participants will pay $3 per game (and as always, shoe rentals are free). All proceeds will benefit the Diabetes Care Center at King’s Daughters’ Health in Madison.

The Diabetes Care Center at KDH provides educate and resources for patients and families dealing with diabetes. Debbie Cross, RN, certified diabetes educator, provides counseling services for newly diagnosed as well as longtime diabetes patients. She assists them with nutritional assessments, diabetes resources, and information about new, innovative treatments. Living with diabetes isn’t easy, but managing the disease is important. The good news: Diabetes can be controlled with proper nutrition, blood sugar (glucose) monitoring and appropriate medication. The center is located on the lower level of the KDH main hospital, 1373 E. SR 62, Madison.

According to Strikers owner Glen Pavy, last year’s event brought in over $400 with very little publicity. He is looking forward to increasing that amount this year.
