    5th ANNUAL SHOOT FOR CYSTINOSIS, July 9, 2022, Thorold, ON


    On July 9, 2022, the Decew Gun Club, Niagara Peninsula Pistol Club and Destination Church are co-hosting the 5th Annual “Shoot for Cystinosis” at the Decew Gun Club.

    No experience necessary - Safety instructors on site - Plenty of raffles and a 50/50 draw
    - Exotic guns will be available to shoot for a small fee

    Help Make Hope A Reality!

    Conceived in 2016, the goal of the “Shoot for Cystinosis” was to bring awareness of the plight of children suffering from this disease and to raise money for research, since most research money comes from private donations and fundraisers.

    The inaugural event was on behalf of a 9 year old St. Catharines girl, the only known case in the Niagara Region, living with this rare disease. Since then she has grown into a lovely young lady who doesn’t want to be defined by her disease. We have, therefore, renamed the event to the “Shoot for Cystinosis” to highlight the disease and help all the young children afflicted by this disease.

    Cystinosis is a rare, incurable metabolic disease in which the amino acid cystine gets into the cells, but has no transporter out. Because of the defect in transportation, the cell crystallizes causing early cell death. It slowly destroys the organs in the body including the kidneys, liver, eyes, muscles and the brain. Cystinosis is a disease so rare that it affects only 2,000 children worldwide.

    Will you join us and help us eradicate this horrible disease? 100% of all money raised donation goes directly to the Cystinosis Research Foundation who are committed to finding a cure.

    Shooter’s Fee - $25 per person (Lunch Included)
    Spectators Welcome
