Special Olympics Edmonton is celebrating a major milestone this weekend.
It’s been 30 years since its annual bowling fundraiser first began.
This year’s fundraising goal is $105,000, all of which will go towards sports programs for athletes who face intellectual challenges.

“Ninety per cent of our revenue comes from private donors and fundraisers like this,” Comeau added.
“This is a real high-energy event — it’s one of our biggest fundraising events of the year.”
About 250 people took part in the event at Bonnie Doon Lanes.
