On April 3, 2019 David Kellerman, aka Kilroy, will be hiking the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. Kilroy is raising money in support of Bowlers to Veterans Link (BVL).

BVL is the sport of bowling's oldest charitable organization. BVL was founded in 1942 to help support America's heroes in uniform. Since then, they have raised almost $50 million to provide recreational and therapeutic progams and services. These programs and services will help boost their morale and brighten sprits. Thanks to BVL, more than 550 active duty units have a portable carpet bowling lane at their disposal. Now they can step away from the stress of service and have fun with their comrades. Through funding and support, these veterans recuperating at VA Medical Centers across the country can enjoy a movie, spend the afternoon hanging at a ball game, play a video game, or try their hand at painting.

Kilroy is asking you to help support the BVL. And for every $25 you donate you can make a guess(es) on when Kilroy wil reach the north terminus on Mt. Katahdin, Maine*. The person who's guess is closest to the date, hour, minute of Kilroy's finish will win a $2,000 Carnival Cruise Line gift certificate. 100% of the proceeds collected will go directly to the BVL and our military personnel and veterans. Kilroy's hike is 100% self-funded. Click on the link to make your donation today.

*Entry deadline for guesses is May 15, 2019. If Kilroy does not complete the AT, a winner will be drawn from all entries. Visit Mel's Lone Star Lanes for official contest rules.
