Champion Helps Families

Champion Traps & Targets is continuing its support of the Kids & Clays Foundation for the second year in the row, helping to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) chapters. As a national sponsor, Champion sent a team to participate in the 20th annual sporting clays tournament fundraiser held by the central Iowa RMHC chapter. Fifty-four squads attended the event, held Sept. 24 at the New Pioneer Gun Club in Waukee, Iowa.

Two local Ronald McDonald Houses were the beneficiaries of the fundraiser, supporting their mission to provide a home away from home for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost. The sold-out event raised more than $110,000 and provided thousands of room nights and other comfort to critically ill children and their families at a time when they need it most.

“The program has made an incredibly meaningful impact over the years thanks in part to the strong support we have from partners like Champion,” said Doug Jeanneret, Kids & Clays executive director. “Champion’s commitment to positive change extends well beyond their passion for shooting sports—it has resulted in critically ill children and their families seeing more compassion in their lives.”

“We’re honored to continue this tremendous partnership with Kids & Clays,” said Eliza Graves, Champion senior brand marketing manager for shooting accessories. “Not only was it a fun event, but it truly makes a difference in the lives of so many people.” Kids & Clays began in 1999 with a sporting clays tournament in Indiana. News of its success quickly spread and today it holds events across the nation throughout the year. The Kids & Clays Foundation has generated more than $20,000,000 through skeet, trap and clay events, with the proceeds going to RMHC to improve the lives of critically ill children and their families.
