Paintball Charity Event: Please read, please contribute!

As most know, I have been involved in paintball for over 15 years now (I am 28 years old!). Recently, a parent of a child that had just completed his last session of chemotherapy contact DBS about his son and a few friends coming down to the arena to shoot targets and enjoy some time with a paintball gun!

Well, he came in for one hour, and loved it! I know for me personally seeing how excited this young boy, all of 7 years old, reacted to his first paintball experience. I was very touched by this, and know that I personally am involved in paintball because of the memories it creates for me while both playing and in being a part of others paintball experience.

WHAT I AM TRYING TO DO

I am working to build a community of paintballers that want to work with me to bring a paintball experience to kids that are fighting cancer. My objective is to either get the kids to one of my facilities, or for me to set something out at the hopsital.

I believe a shooting booth or target range would be best, but am completely open to expanding or modifying that, as again, the idea behind this project is to create a great memory for kids fighting cancer.

Please Note: I will not only allow kids fighting cancer to partake. Anyone at the hospital would be encouraged to come have some fun!

WHAT I NEED FROM YOU

I can get all equipment we would need to set this up at the hospital, but need your help in getting in contact with the right people to make that happen.

Do you know someone that works at Children's? Or another hospital? Please tell them about this and ask how we can make it happen!

THANK YOU!

Paintball has been my life for the last 15 years, and I want to share that with others. Thank you all for being a part of that amazing experience and let's help bring the sport we love and an amazing experience to those in need!

I got your back on this brother, I will see what I can dig up. Is there any other ways to help more directly? Renting vans to transport the children? Things like that? You know me brother, point me in the right direction and look out I'd give you the shirt off my back if ya needed it.

Danny, I know a nurse or two out there, also as I have told you I am blind. But I didn't tell you is how. I lost my sight from cancer 7 years ago. My doctor at overlake has pita list on the board of directors of onc.. For the cancer wards, I need to see him soon anyways and I will talk to him and find out where you need to go. I will need to how you are planning doing this project.
My mother ink law also has a cdl and can drive a bus, and my wife works off and on at the Edmonds sr center which who has a 15 passenger bus that we can try and use for the day.

You could change the theme, but when Dan did the zombie shoot at the Oregon State Fair it went over really well. Had guys dressed up, and WELL ARMORED that they could shoot at in a shooting booth style, but how much better is it when the targets are human and move randomly!

Years ago RUSH Paintball would do the same thing at Oaks Park in Portland for Haloween! Kids loved shooting at us as te targets and went really well.
