DUQUOIN, IL (July 30, 2023) – NubAbility® Athletics Foundation announced today that the organization will be holding a 3D archery clinic for limb-different children Saturday, August 12th through Sunday, August 13th, and a 3D archery fundraiser tournament on Sunday, August 13th. The clinic is for children ages four to seventeen with congenital or traumatic limb loss; the charity tournament is open to all. Both events will be held at the Old Hickory Lake Bowmen Club, 480 Shute Lane in Hermitage, Tennessee. NubAbility is a 501(c)3 charity that helps limb-different children gain confidence and courage through instruction in 24 organized and outdoor sports.
3D archery incorporates three dimensional targets of artificial common game animals placed along an outdoor walking path to create a real-life setting for developing archery skills. “We are grateful to Old Hickory Lake Bowmen Club and The Archery Den for providing access to unique and beautiful private grounds to hold these events,” said NubAbility founder and executive director Sam Kuhnert. “Their generosity makes it possible for limb-different kids to learn and hone their archery skills while experiencing the natural beauty of Tennessee.”
BlueCross Blue Shield of Tennessee is title sponsor for both events.

The tournament will offer three divisions – adult male, adult female, and youth (under the age of 18). Fifty percent of registration fees will be divided among the division winners as prizes.

NubAbility® Athletics Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit that operates a national series of camps designed to get children with congenital or traumatic limb loss out of the stands, off the bench and into organized and outdoors sports. The viral video Boy With No Arms Does Box Jump, which received national media attention in 2019, illustrates the power and pride our campers experience when they overcome obstacles to achieve their goals. NubAbility participants leave camp confident they can win at athletics and in life.
Founded in 2011, NubAbility will offer fifteen camps and outdoor experiences across the United States in 2023. The organization’s volunteer coaching team is made up of 120 limb-different collegiate and professional athletes in 24 sports. For more information, visit www.nubability.org.
