NASP and S3DA Raise $16,980.62 for St. Jude – Two of the most popular youth archery organizations, the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP®) and Scholastic 3-D Archery (S3DA®), partnered together for a second year to host a virtual fundraiser to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The two programs partnered together during the month of January and encouraged all schools, clubs, and teams to participate. Donations were made by archers, parents, family and friends in the name of the school or team on the tournament website.
This virtual event raised an astounding $16,980.62 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This is yet another example of archery saving lives one arrow at a time!
NASP® President Dr. Tommy Floyd said, “We continue to enjoy our collaboration with S3DA and again we worked together and provided a ‘win’ for the kids of St. Jude. We look forward to future opportunities to work together, and we certainly hope other youth shooting sport organizations will join us in future efforts to help the kids of St. Jude. We know that participants in the shooting sports love to help others.”
S3DA® Executive Director, Holly Helton said, “It’s always an honor to work alongside industry partners such as NASP® for the recognition and support of great organizations like St. Jude. S3DA is proud to collaborate with them and we challenge all other organizations to join us in our efforts. When we work together, nothing is impossible!”
