In NASP® we are “Changing Lives one arrow at a time”. NASP® and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital are joining forces to expand our influence to “Saving Lives one arrow at a time”.
Since 2002 parents and teachers have reported how participation in NASP® has helped youth become better students, not just better archers. This new charity tournament will be another great lesson - about helping others.
NASP® is offering weekly online virtual tournaments through May 3rd, 2013. The registration fee is a donation of $5.00 per participant per week. Proceeds will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. All NASP® students are eligible to participate. Students may be registered for one or more of the 9 weeks of this event.
Weekly prizes will be randomly presented to one participating student and a prize package will also be awarded to that student’s school. One lucky archer will be invited to present the donation check to St. Jude representatives at our NASP® National Tournament on May 11th in Louisville, Kentucky.
In the first week, students from 9 different States participated in this event. Haley Sappe from Springfield Middle School, South Carolina won a Genesis bow and Springfield Middle School won a Genesis bow, a box of arrows and a Morrell target for their school program.
Schools that would like to be involved in the tournament should visit www.nasptournaments.org to sign up.
In addition to the NASP® Charity Virtual Tournament, NASP® Students can also help St. Jude though peer fundraising or direct donations by visiting this link www.stjude.org/nasp
St. Jude will be giving away commemorative t-shirts to anyone that raises $35.00 or more through their site. This is completely separate from the Charity Virtual Tournament.
Together we can help St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital continue “Finding Cures. Saving Children.”
