The Central Division of the Eastern Cornhusker Trapshooting Conference raised $7,075 for the American Cancer Society through the first “Shooting for a Cure Trap Shoot” April 18.

The idea came from Lincoln Pius X High School senior and Trap Club member Jacob Kreikemeier. A fellow team member was dealing with cancer in his family. Both of the team member's parents were battling cancer for the second time. Initially, the event would raise money to support the family. Later the idea was expanded to raise awareness of cancer and funds for the American Cancer Society.

Jacob took his idea to his fellow senior teammates who all agreed and wanted to help. They discussed the idea with head coach Craig Keaschall, who suggested that the idea be spread to all teams in the Central Division of the Eastern Nebraska Trapshooting Conference. The group of 19 teams decided to hold a cancer awareness shoot in conjunction with a previously-scheduled trap shoot meet at the Izaak Walton League range southeast of Lincoln.

A group of Pius X seniors created the design for a T-shirt and designated the meet as a breast cancer awareness shoot. Thanks to the generosity of Degree Heating and Cooling approximately 450 participants wore pink “Shooting for a Cure” T-shirts. Free-will donations were taken and additional T-shirts sold.

The Pius X Trap team would like to extend special thanks to everyone for showing their support for those currently battling cancer, celebrating those who have won the fight, and honoring those we have lost.
