A charity for muscular dystrophy awareness has been bowled over by the support of the local community.
The Bowl Goes Green for MDA was held at Warrnambool's Great Ocean Road Ten Pin Bowling on Saturday and raised about $2000 for Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Warrnambool.
Awareness campaigner Chris Gillin has worked tirelessly to raise funds to find a cure for the progressive muscle-wasting disease.
His campaign recently broke a national record, raising more than $80,000 in the past two-and-a-half years.
Great Ocean Road Ten Pin Bowling employee Rebecca said about 150 people tied up their green laces before filling every lane of the bowling alley.
"We also had a lot of walk-ins, people coming to purchase the green laces, loom bands and stickers or just to watch," she said. "Everyone was really excited and happy to be here, and Chris was having a bowl as well, which was great to see him enjoying a game with his friends."
She said she would like to thank everyone involved.
The event was held between 10am and 1pm, with proceeds from every game donated toward muscular dystrophy research.
Ms Dixon said $2.50 from each person that used the lanes for the remainder of the day was also donated.
