Build a Team
Grab up to 4 of your favorite people to bowl with you, join an existing team, sign up as a single bowler or create a “Virtual Team” (for those who cannot attend but would still like to collect donations). No bowling experience is necessary! Get started right away… pick your team, select a team name, and sign up!
We ask that each team collectively raise $250. You can pay that out right, find a sponsor, or ask each team member to fun(d)raise. Don't stop at $250—we'll give prizes to the top fun(d)raisers! And we give you the tools to make it easy.

Did You Know.
The Mentor Connector creates positive change within Rutland County through the power of one-on-one mentoring. Each year, we guide vulnerable youth (age 5-21) through life-changing friendships to build goals, character, and skills to be successful in life. 95% of our youth are living in poverty, 80% suffer from family instability and a many are affected by violence and/or addiction. Without additional resources most of these youth would end up continuing the cycle of addiction and poverty they are living in. However, through referrals from local schools, community organizations, and DCF, we provide a highly trained and supported mentor who helps to change the life narrative. Throughout the past few years, 100% of our high school seniors graduated from high school, 87% stated that mentoring helped increase their self-esteem, and 85% stated mentoring helped them refrain from drugs or alcohol.
