Northwestern Mutual – Dallas Clay Shoot to raise money to combat childhood cancer set for Thursday

The seventh annual Northwestern Mutual – Dallas Clay Shoot returns to the Dallas Gun Club on Thursday for another year of outdoor fun in support of TeamConnor Childhood Cancer Foundation.

The Northwestern Mutual – Dallas Clay Shoot begins with a 9 a.m. registration, 10 a.m. start time and 1 p.m. lunch and finishes with an awards ceremony at 2 p.m. To register or learn more about Northwestern Mutual – Dallas Clay Shoot, visit nmclayshoot.org.

“This is a unique event for people with a passion for outdoor sports to help children with cancer,” stated Kathryn Copple, executive director for TeamConnor, in a press release. “It’s great when people combine their personal interest with an opportunity to help kids who are battling this horrific disease. Every day 43 children are diagnosed with cancer, which translates into more than 15,000 kids a year. Of those diagnosed every year, nearly 2,000 children do not survive. Working together, we can change those statistics.”

Sponsors for the event include Northwestern Mutual Dallas, WebTPA, BenefitsTexas, Partners National Corporate Real Estate Services, Vilhauer Enterprises, Forte’ Benefits, Frisco Gun Club, The Beck Group, Diversified Metroplex Investors, Frost Bank, Thompson Pipe Group, Motorcars of Dallas, Mullis Newby Hurst, ASI, Blake Brawner, and Freedom Powersports.

TeamConnor is the legacy of 8-year-old Connor Cruse of Frisco, who lost his four-year battle with neuroblastoma in 2009. Since 2008, TeamConnor has awarded more than $2 million in funding for childhood cancer research and patient programs across the country.
