Archery is a family sport and is enjoyed by many in Mohave County.
But some in our community can’t participate in this sport because they are afflicted with cancer, a life-altering disease.
But there is a group of caring folks in our community that are asking for your help by participating in the first-ever Shoot For Hope archery event being held June 22-24 at Yellow Pine Ranch in the Hualapai Mountains.
Lacie Robbins (928-377-9451) is one of the organizers of the shoot. Robbins is part of the Kingman Cancer Care Unit, which is an independent local nonprofit organization that is run strictly by volunteers. According to Robbins, the KCCU provides much needed aid to cancer patients and their families within the Kingman area.
Robbins noted, “The goal of the KCCU is to help relieve financial burdens, so that our local cancer patients can focus on healing and getting the treatment that is needed.”
The event will consist of three 15 target 3D courses.
There are other events including a speed shoot, long shot shoot, Friday night shoot, and a special Duke’s Poker Shoot that participants can enjoy. Robbins noted that all proceeds from the Poker Shoot will to go to purchasing items for Phoenix Children’s Hospital – Child Life Wish List and Family Centered Care Programs.
“All of the funds raised from this shoot go to the children and their families,” Robbins said.
There will be raffles, food, and free camping in some of the most beautiful and coolest country close to Kingman.
The organization is seeking business sponsors for the event, and those who choose to become a sponsor have many options. But KCCU is also seeking individuals who can donate items or money for the program.
There are a number of volunteers who are involved with this project. Robbins said you can call any of them for more information.
Besides Robbins, businesses or individuals can contact Taco Esquibel at 928-716-0505, or Clint Van Vleet at 928-530-2629 for more information on the shoot.
