"You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it." The mission of SHOOT FOR THE CURE is to lift the fundraising burden from the shoulders of families and patients with cystic fibrosis to our communities. To raise awareness of cystic fibrosis, to alleviate suffering, advance quality of life and be sensitive to the needs of patients in Alaska. "Your shot gives a child the shot at life."
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Donations are used to provide support for research, for educational tuition scholarships, activity scholarships and to see to the specific needs of patients in Alaska with cystic fibrosis. Alaska patients and families can face significant challenges to those in the lower 48 for access to healthcare, for special procedures or clinical studies. As well, our remote geography and our weather can impede patients from fulfilling an active, preventative lifestyle. We support patients and families by supporting the National Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, supporting research projects, funding crisis or specific needs that CF patients may benefit from. Our main fundraising activity is a Shotgun Sporting Clays Shooting Event held in May, at Birchwood Recreation and Shooting Park where teams of 5 come out and shoot clay targets (trap, skeet and 5-Stand)
