Morristown-Hamblen Hospital Foundation presents the Target for Healthcare Trap Shoot, an exciting event benefiting Morristown-Hamblen Healthcare System. Proceeds from this event allow the foundation to support continuing professional education, program development, and medical equipment needs at the hospital. You’ll find great targets, tasty food and support a worthy cause: proceeds benefit the Morristown-Hamblen Healthcare System.
Trapshooting is a form of clay target shooting with lots of action, movement, and split-second timing. It requires accuracy and skill to repeatedly aim, fire, and hit the 4 1/4 inch clay disc, which is hurled through the air at a speed of 42mph to simulate the flight path of a bird fleeing a hunter. Prizes will be awarded to the Tournament Champion team, as well as the second and third place teams.
Our world is a different place now. All of us are working to safely adapt and thrive amid the constraints and guidelines necessary to slow the spread of the coronavirus. We hope that you are staying safe and healthy.
Even as COVID-19 has challenged us all to find new ways of working and living, the other health care needs of our community have not stopped. Some of our friends and neighbors are still battling cancer, strokes, and other devastating illnesses. Babies are still being born. People are still learning to walk and talk again after traumatic brain injuries. And we are committed to helping them recover with your support.
Within the confines of current CDC and health department guidelines, we are so looking forward to inviting you to join us in making a difference in the health of our communities. We have had to cancel and/or postpone several events this spring and summer, and fund raising revenue for our hospitals and health care services has suffered. Now, we are excited to be planning for both outdoor and indoor fundraising events to begin. Our outdoor golf tournaments and 5k runs are moving forward, as are fall indoor events such as the Morristown-Hamblen gala and Peninsula’s Artsclamation! fine art sale. All are being structured with a strong overlay of safety and flexibility.
We need the support of our volunteers, sponsors and communities to be successful and we pledge to offer you a safe way to partner with us.
