Welcome to Shoot Out For Autism a charity fundraiser for Autism Speaks
The Shoot Out For Autism is an annual team fundraiser for our “Walk Now For Autism Speaks” walk team “Zach’s Pack”. It is a sporting clay tournament held at Ozark Shooters Sports Complex. Participants enjoy a fun filled day of shooting, raffles, music, and food. 100% of proceeds go directly to Autism Speaks (the nation's largest autism science and advocacy organization). Over the past 8 years this event has raised over $76,800!
Shoot Out For Autism raised $15,861 this past June & an additional $540 in October at our Double Shoot. That is a total of $16,401 raised for 2013! It was our best year to date! Thank you so much to all the businesses and participants that made the day such a success! Each one of you have paved the way for research that will someday find answers that will help individuals and their families that struggle with Autism everyday. We are humbled by your generosity. Thank you so much!

Can you imagine hearing the words "your child has autism"? In a split second, life - as you know it - has changed. For a different family every 11 minutes, tomorrow will never be the same. By participating in this event, you are helping to change the future for all who struggle with autism. You help us get one step closer to finding what causes autism, how to prevent and treat it, and ultimately a cure so no family ever hears those words again.
Why We Shoot
In 2003, our son, Zachary, was diagnosed with Autism. At that time it was challenging to find resources that could offer both help and hope. After several years of therapy, Zachary has overcome many challenges, but continues to work hard every day to overcome new obstacles. His struggles, and courage, inspire us to take an active role in raising funds for research. In 2006 we held the first “Shoot Out For Autism”. Our intent is to inspire other outdoorsman and shooting sports enthusiasts to join our cause. To date, this event alone has raised over $75,500 for Autism Speaks. We want Zachary, and all individuals affected with autism, to have opportunities that will enrich their lives and make their futures bright. With your support we can fund not only further research but many beneficial programs that are necessary to make this happen.
