Champion Traps & Targets is offering America yet another example of the firearms industry's commitment to bettering their communities. Champion is a premier manufacturer of shooting target systems and other gear, so now they have childhood illnesses in their sights, we can expect the point of aim to make a real point of impact. As a national sponsor of the Kids & Clays Foundation, Champion helped raise funds at a recent sporting clays tournament in St. Louis, Missouri.
If you're a regular reader of NRA Family, then you've probably heard of Kids & Clays before...but if not, here's how they do what they do to support critically ill kids and their families. Kids & Clays works to help fund Ronald McDonald House Charities through shooting sports fundraising activities. Champion sent a team to participate in the 20th annual Sporting Clays Tournament fundraiser held by Ronald McDonald House Charities of St. Louis. The three local Ronald McDonald Houses provide a home away from home for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost.
“Kids & Clays’ success is built upon relationships with our national sponsors and we’re really happy to have a strong partnership with Champion,” said Zac Lemmon, Kids & Clays program director. “Thanks to Champion and their quality products, countless critically ill children and their families benefit in the St. Louis area and from coast to coast. Kids & Clays looks forward to working with Champion for years to come.”
Eliza Graves, senior brand marketing manager for shooting accessories, was part of the Champion team at the tourney. “It was really nice to get out of the house and shoot at this great event,” she noted. “We are honored to have a tremendous partnership with Kids & Clays that truly helps make a difference in the lives of many people.” Kids&Clays.com
