San Jose, CA (PressExposure) June 06, 2012 -- This is the fourth year that "Challenge for Children's" has brought players together to raise funds for the hospital network...and give players a big scenario game like no other! This year, players will even have a chance to take home a brand new RAP4 marker!
Host Field MN Pro Paintball will welcome players to their 200 acre field on Sunday, May 20th, with the big game kicking off at 9am and running until at least 5pm. For $25 pre-registration, or $40 on the day of the event, players get air fills all day and access to a game with over 400 players! Rental packages will only be $10, so experienced players are encouraged to bring their friends by the dozens for a surprisingly affordable big game experience...that will generate a lot of money for Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota!
Real Action Paintball is once again a key sponsor, and looks forward to seeing our players represent the diehard mil-sim community when they arrive with their mag-fed RAP4 and Tacamo markers. This year, we've donated five (5) markers to be given away at the event. What'll you have to do to earn one? First: show up, and you'll find out what it takes to go home with the hottest new gear in paintball!
We're proud that in the first three years, this event - with the help of RAP4 players and many hundreds of scenario fans from around the country - has raised over $50,000. This year's goal: $25,000...in one day, through entrance fees, donations, and sponsorships.
Players can get their employers, favorite restaurants, and home fields to sponsor them with a little money for paint and a nice donation outright to Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota. Want to show the world that we take care of our own? Matt Ames, the founder of this event and the CEO of MN Pro Paintball, has been a patient at Children's Hospitals for 28 years - he knows the kind of life-saving work they do, and how their doctors help sick kids not only recover...but recover so well that they can go on to make paintball a cornerstone of their lives!
"We are grateful for the community support that has made Challenge for Children's one of the largest privately run fundraising events for Children's Hospitals," said Briana Oakes, the Benefit Events Coordinator at Children's Foundation. "We would not be able to provide the high quality care to all in need without fundraising help from groups like MN Pro Paintball."
Be part of the solution the kids at these hospitals need. Be part of the community of paintballers who represent our sport, and themselves, so well in public and the media. Be part of a big game that unfolds across 200 acres, with more than 400 of your best friends and most challenging adversaries.
Most importantly: be there, at MN Pro Paintball in Lakeville, Minnesota, on May 20th...and you'll have a chance to win one of the five markers RAP4 donated for the event!
