Clays For Cara

You could call it Suns Out Guns Out!

Or you could say that on October 4th, 2014 there will be more TREATING  and less tricking!

Since being here in Texas we have been fortunate enough to receive so much help and generosity from so many different directions.  Some of the help is coming from The Cara Hobbs Foundation.  Clays For Cara was organized in 2010 as a way to help Cara and her family in the tough times while she battled Brain Cancer.  Anyone who has had Cancer or a loved one with Cancer knows how much support is needed.  Whether that comes in the forms of money, dinners, gas cards for trips or even visits from others, support is support and that is all there is to it.

Cara Hobbs passed away in March of 2011 from Brain Cancer.  In 2011 the Clays for Cara event achieved a goal of raising enough money to set up the Cara Ann Hobbs Endowment at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston Texas.

How our family got involved with the Cara Hobbs Foundation is a crazy story from the beginning but it shows just how much the community around us is so caring and tight-knit.  I had only been CrossFitting at Hill Country CrossFit  for a couple weeks when Coach Laura Roberson mentioned and told me about Clays for Cara.  She asked if she could give my families name to the people there for future consideration to receive assistance from them.  I told her "sure".  Just to be thought of by people and still being new in the area felt great.

That is when I came home talked to T and told her what Coach Laura had told me.  Time went by and then one day I got a phone from the Cara Hobbs Foundation Director Andrew Watson.  I had a great conversation with Andrew about the Foundation and he had told me that my family was one of the families that was chosen.  He discussed with me the details of what when on and how the chosen families were helped.  I told him it was just great to be selected and to be able to join a community that stands for something I believe in, which is finding a way to help families that are dealing with Cancer and making Brain Cancer more known.

Since then I have met with Andrew in person and expressed my gratitude.  It will be such a great honor to be a family that is helped by a Foundation that was created for a strong woman, mother and wife such as Cara Hobbs.  I hope to meet Justin and their daughters also to thank them as well.

The Clays for Cara event is being held on October 4th.  This is an event where there will be Clay Shooting along with a dinner and also some auctions. You can check out the main site at Clays For Cara to find out all of the information and you can even sign up for the newsletter.

If you like to shoot anything, register to come shoot some Clays.  If you like to eat, register for the dinner.  Maybe you like doing both!  I'm not getting in your way of signing up.  Even if you can't make it to the event, register and donate to help anyone of these families.

Follow Clays for Cara on Twitter, Facebook or YouTube.

October 4th will be here soon, make sure you jump on this!
