“The fine people at Blackwood have offered to assist in raising money by donating a portion of their daily sales to our cause”, said Gregory Hopper, founder of Back the Brave. “What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than at Blackwood Gun Club raising money for those who protect us day in and day out. God Bless all that help others”.
The foundation was founded by Sugar Land Fire Captain Greg Hopper in 2016. He previously raised awareness in 2015 for Law Enforcement by raising over $65,000 for fallen police officers with the I’ve Got Your Back campaign. With the money raised, Back the Brave will be able to assist and help other families with Line of Duty deaths.
Kids can climb through firetrucks, explore the Montgomery County Hospital District ambulance, and visit with law enforcement officers while learning about the people that protect the community to keep everyone safe.
“Blackwood Gun Club has a mission to balance shooting sports with developing skills, events and community engagement”, said Aaron Bearden, wife of owner Jeff Bearden of the Blackwood Gun Club. “We are in the firearm business because of the community and especially those that serve us daily. Back the Brave is a great event to honor the first responders in our community”..
