Young girl participates in "Shoot for a Cure"

ROCHESTER, Minn. – Marksmen young and old came together for a cause on Saturday.

It was the annual “Shoot for a Cure” fundraiser at Coyote Creek Gun and Archery in Rochester.

The goal of the event is to raise money for cancer research at St. Jude’s Hospital and Mayo Clinic.

Event organizers tell that in the past couple of years the event has raised more than $160,000 for cancer research.

Trent Kleeberger, the archery pro at Coyote Creek, says he is humbled by the number of people who come out to the event every year, and says this kind of community support is the key to finding a cure.

“We have access to some of the greatest medical facilities in the world so, with that being said, you can’t help but want to help them because they help the world.”

Kleeberger and the rest of the crew at Coyote Creek are certainly helping the cause.
