Here is a nice story out of St. Louis, Mo., where Champion Traps & Targets, in conjunction with the Kids & Clays Foundation recently helped to raise funds to help sick children and their families at a sporting-clays tournament.

Kids & Clays, which has been designated as an official charity by the ATA (Amateur Trapshooting Association), supports Ronald McDonald House Charities by using the shooting sports to improve the lives of critically ill children and their families. 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 to hospitalized children, with little or no cost to them.

Eliza Graves, Champion's senior brand marketing manager for shooting accessories, was a member of the company team at the event. “It was really nice to get out of the house and shoot at this great event,” said Graves. “We are honored to have a tremendous partnership with Kids & Clays that truly helps make a difference in the lives of many people.”

“Thanks to Champion ... countless critically ill children and their families benefit in the St. Louis area and from coast to coast,” said Zac Lemmon, Kids & Clays program director. “Kids & Clays looks forward to working with Champion for years to come.”
