Get to Know Us

A Direct Action Focus


When you partake in a Shoot for Life event, you can do so knowing your support goes directly to programs that provide immediate relief for that illness.  At our event we also provide direct action by gifting a brand-new bow to nominated veterans.  In hopes to share a new found Place of Peace.




Why a Bow


When you are shooting a bow, your mind is focus on sending an arrow down range.  In order to do that, that requires mental focus on how you draw the bow, settle on each anchor point, find your mark, and release the arrow in one fluid soundless motion.  Archery aides in mental clarity and provides therapeutic properties while engaging in the sport. It is within our mission to reintroduce/integrate first responders back into the outdoors with the devotion to archery.
