The Dude Hates Cancer


Sep 23, 2017

“The Dude” started twelve years ago with a small group of friends who loved getting together and having fun, and hated cancer.  Inspired by the cult classic movie “The Big Lebowski,” they started a bowling tournament.  These days, “The Dude” is that and more - it’s a multi-city, annual charity campaign for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Since inception, TDHC has raised over $650,000 for blood cancer research and patient advocacy, and had an immense amount of fun along the way.

This year’s campaign starts in June and lasts until our main event, September 23, at South Bowl. Over 300 participants will raise money over the summer and bowl that day – some will bowl well, many will bowl poorly.  All will have a great day. Cancer will have a bad day.

Every dollar and cent you contribute helps someone who really needs it.  This campaign means a lot to our volunteers and participants, many of whom are survivors or have had their lives touched by blood cancer.  Thank you very, very much for your support. 


$300.00 per team
