Braving 30 MPH winds, Shoot For A Cure wraps up the 2017 season on a very special note…
Jason Comer worked as a Paramedic for Medic Ambulance (Vallejo, CA) for 16 years. Jason delivered 4 babies and saved count- less lives during his career. He worked with the High Schools in the area and helped put on “Every 15 Minutes” which educates teenagers in the dangers of drinking and driving. Jason was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) in July of 2016. Once treatment started he went into a downward spiral. He was scheduled to go to Stanford for a Stem Cell transplant, but never made it due to his MDS progressing to Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). He is survived by his wife and two young sons.
On Saturday, October 14th we hosted the first annual Jason Comer Memorial Shoot at Quail Point Hunt Club in Zamora, CA with the goal of setting up two trust funds for his sons, Jackson and Travis. When all was said and done, due to the generosity of all of our good friends, we were able to net $28,000 for the Comer family. That’s $14,000 each to start trust funds for Jason’s two young sons!!!
A VERY SPECIAL THANKS to Keira Comer, Sean Hoover, the Comer family, Jim Pierson and Medic Ambulance, Fremont Bank, Quail Point Sporting Clays, and of course all of our sponsors, shooters and volunteers. You are all a part of one big, very loving, sometimes dysfunctional family and we pulled together for something very special. We love you all!!! Please see a few pics below and the event scores here.
