At the 32nd annual United Cerebral Palsy of the Inland Empire (UCPIE) Bowl-a-thon, held Sept. 10 at Palm Springs Lanes, every game was a perfect game.

They were perfect — not always because of the scores but because the Bowl-a-thon reflects UCPIE’s mission: “Life without limits for people with disabilities.” This year’s Bowl-a-thon drew approximately 150 people and raised $12,000 to support UCPIE’s adaptive bike and after-school programs.

The adaptive bike program is open to special needs individuals of all ages residing in both Riverside and San Bernardino counties. According to UCPIE, support from event sponsors means that 100% of the funds raised will go directly to programs.
