About Our Event


Hey folks! We’re gearing up for an awesome year of club, campaigners, contact work and camp and we really need the support of the community to meet our goals! What better way is there to support our local YoungLife area than to slip on your bowling shoes and roll a couple of strikes for a very worthy cause? We’re hosting our first annual Bowl-a-thon at Galaxy Strikes in Warrenton and all proceeds will directly support our programs and camps for middle and high school kids in Fauquier County. What’s the best part? You’ll be bowling and it’s easy to sign up! You can sign up individually, create your own team and even join the event from another city through donations.

You’ll be helping us continue our mission of introducing kids to Jesus and helping them grow in their faith. Check out how to register below or it’s easy to make a donation if you can’t make it. 

How a Bowl-a-thon Works


  1. Commit to participate in Fauquier County YoungLife Bowl-a-thon on Thursday, May 30.
  2. Choose a Team Captain, and choose your unique team name! Get creative!
  3. Team Captain recruits bowlers, forms a team of 4-6 bowlers, and registers their team and members.
  4. Registration fee is $50 per bowler ($200 for team of 4, $250 for team of 5, $300 for team of 6) and is applied toward fundraising goals.
  5. Bowlers set team fundraising goals, asking friends and family to donate to their team, online through www.bowlathon.net/event/fauquier-young-life-2024

* Donations are tax deductible. Receipts will be automatically generated & emailed.
* Visit www.bowlathon.net/event/fauquier-young-life-2024 often for updates on the fundraising contest!
* Prizes awarded for best fundraiser, best team uniforms, best team spirit, high score, gutter ball getter and others!

How to Participate


CREATE A TEAM:  Grab up to six of your favorite people to bowl with (each team may have 4-6 bowlers) and choose your unique team name! Get creative!

REGISTER TO BOWL:  All bowlers must register to bowl. Select the time slot in which you would like to bowl (6-7 PM, 7-8 PM, or 8-9 PM). You can join an existing team, or sign up as a single bowler.

Don’t have a team? No sweat! Just register to bowl and select “Please assign me to a team” – we will place you on one! Please leave a note in the comment field if you prefer a specific session.

PAY REGISTRATION FEES:  Registration fee to bowl is $50 per bowler ($300 for a team of 6). Registration fee includes shoe rental and two games.

We invite all bowlers to collect pledges and donations. It would be great if each team could set a goal to raise $1,000. Daunting, i know! But another local Bowlathon team last year actually raised in excess of $3,000. Don’t underestimate yourself and be bold in asking. Then come have fun on May 30th!

* TEAM CAPTAINS – please make sure all of your teammates know the date, time and location of the event. Session begins promptly on time. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to start time to check-in with your team, grab your shoes and grab the perfect ball! Don’t forget your socks! Shoes are complimentary. Food and refreshments are available for purchase at Galaxy Strikes.

About Fauquier County YoungLife

Young Life in Fauquier County was started in 1986 when Fauquier High School was the lone high school in the county. Since then, the county has added two high schools and multiple middle schools. Coming out of COVID, Young Life in Fauquier County is relaunching and reaching more kids for Jesus! Along with a rich history of direct ministry, the county also has donors, volunteers, and friends of Young Life who have been stakeholders for 25+ years. It’s a unique area that has rich history, new traditions and excited partners.
