Young bowler remembered with bowl-a-thon

Bowling coach of girl who died on Florida vacation organizes fundraiser

— “I was telling her parents they might have to go to a heavier ball next year,” said Rivers.

Jojo’s parents couldn’t be reached for comment, but Rivers said when he told her father, David, about the bowl-a-thon, he was “very happy” and planned to call the school district to spread the word.

Doing his small part to help the family and community heal is all he’s trying to do, said Rivers.

“I know I’m going to miss her,” said Rivers. “They still talk about her at the bowling alley (and) try to keep her … in our heads.”
