CALGARY – Some Easter Seals ambassadors joined in a big pajama party at Century Casino Friday afternoon.

It was part of the sixth annual Friends of We Care Bowling Challenge raises about $18,000 -$20,000 every year to help send kids with disabilities to camp.

Many of the kids who had attended Camp Horizon participated in Friday’s event. Some also showed off some impressive bowling skills.

“Especially with my health, it’s really hard to do a sport because I can’t be tackled… so I always wanted to do a sport and [bowling] was a sport I could try,” said Nicole Wuetherick.
