Crossfire Adventure Paintball in Cavendish is inviting teams to Shoot for the Cure and the bragging rights to the Crossfire Cup on Sunday, Oct. 13, in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation's CIBC Run for the Cure.
Winners will also have bragging rights to the Crossfire Cup on Sunday, Oct. 13, in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure.
Teams of four or more players can challenge colleagues, organizations, groups, families and others in this unique event that will take place on all seven of Crossfire’s paintball fields, which depict Second World War scenarios.
The event will draw participants from around the Maritimes.
“We are really excited to be partnering with Crossfire Adventure Paintball and have their support with this event,” said Melissa MacDonald, Run for the Cure Director in Prince Edward Island. “The Run for the Cure only happens on Run Day, but it is initiatives and fundraising like this that keeps us working for a future without breast cancer all year long.”
For a $20 (plus HST) registration fee, participants receive an equipment package including a paintball gun, mask, team armband, unlimited air and 100 paintballs.
They then compete in a round robin format.
Challenge fans are encouraged to come out and cheer on their favourite team and support this great cause.
Crossfire provides spectators with a safe viewing area to watch the action. Food and refreshments will also be available with 100 per cent proceeds going to the charity.
“When the idea of an event like this was brought up we jumped at the chance to participate in raising money for Run for the Cure,” said Dean Johnstone of Crossfire Adventure Paintball. “We hope people will put together a team and challenge others to do the same.” Crossfire is located in Cavendish, next to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Museum.
