Henry Repeating Arms has designed and donated 42 special Golden Boy rifles to help fund an Alabama toddler’s cancer treatments. The “Fight Like A Kid” Tribute Edition .22 cal. rifles, will all carry the “Fight Like A Kid” laser engraving on the buttstock and will have special serial numbers KELLEN01-KELLEN42, for 2-year-old Kellen Findley of Dozier, Ala., who was diagnosed with Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma (striated muscle) cancer, which will require 42 cancer treatments. 

The rifle shown here is the first of the 42 guns to be sold and is likely the only one that will be made available on gunbroker.com, auction # 532360390. The gun carries serial number KELLEN01. The high bidder will also receive a special Certificate of Authenticity and Letter of Appreciation from Henry Repeating Arms President Anthony Imperato. The auction features a $420 opening bid and a Buy Now of $4,200.

“We have been continually amazed by the generosity and devotion to helping others that has been shown by America’s gun owners, particularly the more than 3 million dedicated GunBroker.com users,” said Imperato. “When I suggested the $4,200 “Buy Now” price, a few folks thought I was overly optimistic. You just watch, I told them.”

In addition to KELLEN01, two additional rifles will be raffled by Top Gun Arms in Ethridge, Tenn. The balance will be auctioned, raffled or sold through Buds Gun Sales, Sevierville, Tenn. Contact Top Gun Arms by calling 931-363-5403 or visiting topgun-arms.com.  Contact Buds Gun Sales by calling 865-774-2007 or visiting budsgunshoptn.com

This donation is just the most recent in Imperato's philanthropic efforts, which have evolved into Henry Repeating Arms' "Guns for Great Causes." To learn more about other recent charitable donations by Henry, please enjoy the following articles:
