Many of us never think twice about enjoying the outdoors – shooting and hunting with friends and family. It’s where so many of our greatest memories and strongest bonds are formed. But for more than 4,000,000 disabled veterans and first responders, and more than 36,000,000 physically disabled Americans, such simple pleasures can often seem beyond reach. Through new education and training programs, creating outdoor access and public awareness, we can help them overcome their challenges and enjoy what we take for granted.

Help make a difference in their lives and the lives of their loved ones.  Join us for the 3rd National Disability Awareness Shoot in picturesque Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, October 1 – 2, 2017.  Proceeds will benefit the NRA Foundation, Disabled Shooting Services Endowment, in perpetuity.

The National Disability Awareness Shoot will kick off on Sunday, October 1st.  All event attendees are welcome to shoot a round of sporting clays or to go bass fishing on Sunday.  An afternoon shooting clinic will be held at Lehigh Valley Sporting Clays for disabled shooters.  After a fun day of shooting, everyone will gather at Bear Creek Mountain Resort in Macungie, PA,  for a reception and a multi-course “5-Star” gala dinner.  This will include Certified Angus Beef and King Crab Legs served family style, paired with award-winning wines and desserts and followed by an after-dinner nightcap of spirits and cigars.  This very special evening is limited to 250 participants.

Monday’s main event will consist of 75 clay targets shot over 12 stations where many of the stations will be hosted by some of the premier shotgun manufacturers from around the world.  Participants will have the opportunity to shoot these bespoke shotguns.  New this year will be a few handgun stations with remote controlled automated targets.  This is not a tournament; this is an opportunity to shoot fine shotguns and handguns that you only dream about.  There will be clay shooting clinics for first-time clay shooters by our celebrity instructors, as well as activities for non-shooters.

This is not your traditional fundraising shoot.  The attire is casual for all functions and there will be no long speeches or head tables. Please join us for two days of fun and friendship to support a great cause!
