Dozens laced up their bowling shoes and headed to the Incline Station to take part in a local fundraiser Saturday.

Arc Northland and People First of Duluth hosted the Bowl-A-Thon.

The organization is made up of people with disabilities who are self-advocates.

They meet once a month to learn a new skill and about resources that are available to help them defend their human rights and live fulfilling lives.

“We’re also wanting to recruit new people that have any disabilities of any sort to come down and see what People First is all about. If it’s for them ok, it not, well at least we gave it a good shot,” said People First of Duluth Participant Tara Wilson.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will make it possible for People First of Duluth to bring in monthly guest speakers, provide fun activities and help with the end of the year banquet costs.
