The clay shooting competition proceeds benefit Chloe’s Journey of Faith which raises money for pediatric brain cancer research and helps local families that are dealing with any type of childhood cancer with financial support and resources.
“This organization was started by my 13-year old daughter Chloe who lost her life to Glioblastoma brain cancer in 2017. Her mission then was to help kids like her and to give back to her community,” said Michelle Cox, Chloe’s mother. “Her mission became our mission in supporting pediatric brain cancer research and to aid and advocate for local families who have children battling cancer.”
