Shoot Like A Girl is taking aim at breast cancer by announcing a new shooting tournament running until February 2016. All proceeds benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation, and the organization has already raised more than $40,000 in the last five years. Both archers and firearms shooters can do their part . . .
“We raised $8,317.00 this past year, and have set a new goal of raising $20,000 by adding a Firearms Tournament to our already successful Archery Tournament,” said Karen Butler, the President of Shoot Like a Girl. “Cost for the tournament are kept low due to our great partners, with 100 percent of the profit donated to NBCF for early detection screenings and research to end this horrible disease.”
Partners TRUGLO Inc. and McCarthy Printing were happy to help out. “It is a great honor and privilege to be able to participate with SLG2 in an event that raises money for a cause that has touched the lives of so many people. Everyone knows someone that has experienced breast cancer either directly or indirectly,” stated Lorraine Hellinghausen, TRUGLO Inc. Vice President of Marketing.
Anyone can take part: men, women, and children. There are categories for all ages. Archers can shoot a recurve, traditional, or compound bow, and shooters can use a rifle or handgun. There will be prizes to offer for national winners.
Participants can sign up on the organization’s website, upon which special targets will be mailed to competitors. All ranges who participate will receive a certificate of appreciation.
