On Friday, July 26 the Morristown-Hamblen Hospital Foundation hosted the inaugural Target for Healthcare Trap Shoot held at Hog Heaven Gun Club located in White Pine, TN. What is trapshooting? Trapshooting is a form of clay target shooting with lots of action, movement, and split-second timing. It requires accuracy and skill to repeatedly aim, fire, and hit the 4 1/4 inch clay disc, which is hurled through the air at a speed of 42mph to simulate the flight path of a bird fleeing a hunter.
Friday was an exciting and fun filled day which raised over $11,000 to benefit the patients and families of the Morristown-Hamblen Healthcare System. The Kinley Project is one program that will benefit from the fundraiser. The Kinley Project provides the families of stillborn and premature babies a support box to help them through a very difficult time. The basket includes a keepsake locket, gas cards, baby blankets, preemie clothing, baby blankets and more.
