More than 200 supporters participated in the hospital’s 10th annual Dallas Sporting Clay Shoot at Elm Fork Shotgun Sports last Saturday, August 23. The event has raised more than $200,000 for patient care at TSRHC.
Among the participants was TSRHC patient Jace, a 15-year-old competitive shooter from Kingsbury who finished first among juniors at the event. Jace is one of the top shooters on the Texas 4-H circuit and has aspirations to make the U.S. Olympic shooting team. When a diagnosis of scoliosis threatened to sideline him, Jace received corrective surgery at TSRHC.
Emily, a 9-year-old Forney patient who has created more than 200 handmade sock monkeys for TSRHC surgical patients through her Emily’s Monkeys program, also attended the clay shoot. In collaboration with Hatco, Inc., Emily donated two hats designed by the company to the event’s live auction, and her father, Josh, brought 24 shooters and dozens of volunteers to be part of “Team Emily.”
Former TSRHC patient Daniel Massey, 41, of Austin also participated in the clay shoot. Born without arms or legs, Daniel is a role model for anyone facing adversity. You can learn more about Daniel in his patient story video on our YouTube channel.
