Ronnie Hindsman's Bowling Tournament
Ronnie lost both his arms in a work accident on June 29, 2004. He attended his first Skills for Life workshop in 2008, which he described as life changing because he learned so much from meeting with others like him. Because of the 2008 SFL event, he was inspired to give back. He wanted to ensure that these workshops continue, so he hosted a bowling tournament fundraiser in 2019. The fundraiser was such a success that it is now an annual event. Ronnie hopes even more people living with bilateral upper limb loss join him at future events.
With the help of his friends, family and the local bowling community, Ronnie has held 4 successful bowling tournaments and raised over $58,000 benefitting Enhancing Skills for Life.
Ronnie's Fifth Annual Bowling Tournament will be held February 18-19, 2023 at Triple J Lanes in Livingston, TX. You don't have to bowl if you come, and you don't need to bring anything special with you, you just need to bring yourself and be ready to have fun. If you want to give bowling a try, we will have some equipment for you to test out. There is always a good life hack tip to be shared, lots of socializing and awesome raffle/silent auction items to win! It helps raise money for a great cause and it is super cool to watch everyone bowl those strikes!
