February 27, 2016 was the perfect day to bring Dr. Oliver Sartor and all of his Gunning for a Cure supporters to Plaquemines Parish once again for our ongoing battle with Prostate Cancer. The beautiful 45 degree morning began at 8 with registration and coffee & donuts. Welcome remarks from Chalyn Perez and Dr. Sartor touched on the meaningful work that Gunning for a Cure is supporting.
At 9am, the fun really began as 41 - 4 person teams began their journey through a 15 station sporting clays course designed specifically for the event. Participants ranged in age from 8 to 80 and all were out there for the same purpose - to support a doctor who has dedicated his life to serving, treating and improving the lives of men who find themselves battling prostate cancer.
When the dust settled, some 4 hours later, 18,000 rounds of ammunition had been shot - while only some of these rounds broke the clay - all hit their target of showing support for Dr. Sartor and his team.
