In April, Boyd’s Tire & Service Center participated in the “Bowl for a Cure” fundraiser, helping to raise money for breast cancer research and the Stefanie Spielman Fund. In addition to sponsoring two bowling teams, Boyd’s Tire & Service Center provided printing for T-shirts to mark the event. Thanks in part to their contributions, the fund has received nearly $11,000 this year, which pushes the total past $50,000 for its four-year history.
The event was held at Sequoia Bowl in Columbus, and Boyd’s Tire & Service Center joined other sponsors such as Rusted Apparel, Lambert’s Coffee and the men’s and women’s bowling teams from Ohio State University.
The fund is named for Stefanie Spielman, who died of breast cancer at the age of 42. Spielman, wife of renowned NFL linebacker Chris Spielman, lost her 11-year fight with the disease in 2009. She considered it her life’s mission to help raise awareness and money to defeat breast cancer, and established the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research in 1998. Over the years, the fund has raised $6.5 million for research, education and patient assistance, all through Ohio State University’s Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.
Columbus’ Bowl for a Cure has averaged over 300 participants in each of its five years, with bowlers from as far away as Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Parkersburg coming to help. Today, Columbus’ Bowl for a Cure is solidly in the top ten percent of total dollars raised for the Fund.
