We are thrilled to bring Ber’s Bowl back to acac Midlothian and to acac Short Pump in 2024. Below you will find our schedule of classes for the weekend at both clubs. Just click on the schedule to open it up into a printable format.

acac donates $1 for each class a member takes and $5 for each class a guest takes to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. Members may bring guests free of charge to any Ber’s Bowl class during the weekend (as space allows).

Registration for classes will take place online 25 hours in advance up until 1 hour prior to class or at the club in person beginning 30 minutes prior to class start time.

If you are not interested in classes or are looking for additional ways to help, there are many other opportunities including purchasing a commerative t-shirt, a 50/50 raffle ticket, baked goods from our bake sale, pre-ordered chili at Midlothian or an item from our silent auction. Find details in our Friday Newsletters or stop by or call the front desk to learn more. You can also make a donation by going to our Cookies for Kids’s Cancer Ber’s Bowl Fundraising Page.

The Ber’s Bowl Story

Ber (“Bear”) is the 20 year old son of acac Midlothian Group Exercise Director Amber van der Meer. He is an extremely special, loving energetic and curious young man who has won the hearts of everyone at acac and in this community.

In 2007, after Ber’s 4th birthday, family and friends were devastated to learn that he was diagnosed with Stage-4 Neuroblastoma, a type of children’s cancer. Since then, Ber has proven to be quite a warrior, fighting through numerous surgeries, radiation, chemo, and other difficult treatments. Each year, acac has raised money through Ber’s Bowl, initially to help fund treatments for Ber and in later years to Cookies for Kid’s Cancer for pediatric cancer research.
