The Range 702 in Las Vegas Aims to "Shoot Out Cancer"

The Range 702, Nevada's largest indoor shooting facility, is hosting an on-site shooting competition to "shoot out cancer” with proceeds benefiting Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada, a non-profit organization that provides support and services to families of children diagnosed with cancer.

On Friday, October 11, Shoot Out Cancer competitors will shoot a series of three firearms and will be scored on precision and accuracy by The Range 702’s Range Safety Officers, who are on-site during the competition.

The $120 event registration includes:
-45 rounds on a Glock, Springfeild XD, and AK47
-Eye/ear protection
-Post-competition awards banquet with food and beverages

Participants are entered into Top Overall, Top Female, and Top First-time shooter categories for a chance to win a firearm (pending background check). A raffle is also held following the event for a chance to win experiences with event sponsors including Sky Combat Ace, and Flightlinez Bootleg Canyon.

“The Range 702 is excited to turn the sport of shooting and into a friendly competition to support the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation’s cause to assist families so that kids don’t have to fight cancer alone,” said Lianne Heck, Director of Marketing at The Range 702. “The Range 702’s staff are so determined to hit our goal of raising $30,000 by registering 250 participants, that they have all volunteered to let the Candlelighters kids shave their heads in celebration if we reach the goal!”

The Shoot Out Cancer competition takes place on Friday, October 11 from 7-9 p.m. at The Range 702, located at 4699 Dean Martin Drive in Las Vegas. For more information or to register for the Shoot Out Cancer event at The Range 702, visit www.candlelightersnv.com.
