Athletico and Accelerated employees joined us at 6 different locations on Thursday, April 16, around the city to bowl on behalf of the kids in our mentoring programs all over our 4 service county areas. This group is always our BEST DRESSED Bowl for Kids’ Sake event as each team wears a unique team costume! Check out the photos to see some of our favorites.
