Hunting for Heroes
Chris Allen is a police officer who believes in the law enforcement community taking care of our own. And that’s the motto of the organization he co-founded with another LEO, Chuck Bowles, called Hunting for Heroes.
H4H facilitates LEO’s who have been disabled in any way to return to hunting and other active events with the assistance of adaptive equipment and volunteers. It all started with Chuck and Chris working on a television show, of all things. As part of the show, the idea of a charity hunt was considered, with the proceeds intended to help an already established organization assisting disabled LEO’s. Chuck and Chris couldn’t find an organization to sponsor. They could not find one organization specifically dedicated to assisting the disabled from this honorable profession. Chris and Chuck founded H4H to respond to that need.
Do you want to get involved in assisting disabled heroes? H4H is always in need of volunteers and special adaptive equipment to help those they serve in outdoor activities. Do you know of a disabled LEO who would benefit from an association with H4H? Please pass on this article to them. You can also register to participate in an H4H event.
H4H will sponsor their first annual trap shoot on Saturday, May 12, 2012 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Lake Lotawana Sportsmen’s Club in Lake Lotawana, MO. To register or for more information go to the Hunting for Heroes website at http://huntingforheroes.org/index-1.html or call 816-812-7991.
