This fundraiser was part of Heritage Training and Shooting Center’s quarterly tradition to give back to the community that supports it.
FREDERICK, Md. (PRWEB) March 16, 2018
Heritage Training and Shooting Center in Frederick, Maryland donated $690 to American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women initiative. The money was raised through a firearm raffle. Participants donated $5 for a chance to win a Special Operations Forces M19. Participants could then shoot a course of fire for a second entry into the raffle.
Go Red For Women is an American Heart Association (AHA) project. According to their website, AHA decided in 2004 that women were not paying attention to cardiovascular disease. They dismissed it as an, “old man disease,” however heart disease claims nearly 500,000 American women each year.
Heritage Training and Shooting Center chose this initiative to donate to help empower women to take charge of their heart health. Similar to Go Red for Women and American Heart Association, Heritage and its staff have a passion for creating an atmosphere to empower women. Heritage holds monthly Well Armed Woman meetings as well as women’s-only classes to encourage women to become comfortable and confident with firearms.
The firearm, a Special Ops Edition Glock 19, is one of 1000 of its kind also stemming from a charitable project. A portion of the sales of this firearm were donated by Talo Distributors to the MARSOC Foundation which was created to provide support to Marine Raiders and their families. The winner of the firearm was Lewis Nordan, who is a Complete Member of Heritage Training and Shooting Center.
This fundraiser was part of Heritage Training and Shooting Center’s quarterly tradition to give back to the community that supports it. The Frederick shooting range has donated money to the Wounded Warrior Project and the Hurwitz Breast Cancer fund in the past.
