Titan's Michael Griffin Bowls Against Diabetes

According to a report at Titans Online, Tennessee Titan Michael Griffin is taking up a charge in the fight against Diabetes, and bowling to help support the cause.

Griffin will host the Strikes To Stop Diabetes celebrity bowling tournament on Monday, September 15, 2014 at the Hillwood Strike and Spare Family Fun Center.

In the past, this event was hosted by Mike Munchak, former Titans coach, but with Mike’s departure from the Titans, someone needed to step up to host the event, and Griffin, an avid bowler, took the reins!

When asked about the new honor, Griffin reportedly said…

I am really excited to host the Strikes to Stop Diabetes event. I am a big bowler, and I have loved playing in th event with my teammates in the past. I am honored to serve as the host this year, and help join in the fight against Diabetes.”

Dreambuilders Foundation will be hosting the event this year that will take place on September 15th, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and all of the money raised from the event will go to support the American Diabetes Association.

Those who are lucky enough to participate in the event will get the opportunity to throw some strikes and spare (hopefully no gutter balls) with some of their favorite Titan players, and they’ll also receive a souvenir shirt, and get a chance to participate in a silent auctions to win some great memorabilia.

If you’d like to sponsor the event or participate, the cost is a reasonable $1,200.00, and you can reserve a spot by calling 615-535-3140, or you can also send an email to events@dreambuildersfoundation.com.

As a diabetic myself (diagnosed some 3 years ago), I know the struggles that those with this disease have to endure, and I applaud Michael Griffin’s efforts, as well as those of the team and coaches, to help support the American Diabetes Association. Thanks Michael!
