About Hunt with Heart
Hunt with Heart, a Houston-area non-profit, wants to make a difference in the lives of young people battling severe, life threatening or life altering illness. The organization began with a unique and focused mission – to empower the lives of young people battling severe, life threatening and life altering illnesses through memorable outdoor activities with their families.
According to Hunt with Heart’s executive director, Chance Sanford, the organization helps sick young people build self-esteem and feel empowered, sometimes for the first time, since team sports are not an option. Hunt with Heart activates help young people to experience the comradery of being part of activities that focus on their abilities, rather than their ‘dis-abilities.’.
Since 2012, Hunt with Heart has raised more than a half a million dollars in contributions from donors, event registrations and in-kind donations. Through this generous support, Hunt with Heart has provided a chance for more than 45 young people to experience the camaraderie of being part of guided, supervised, and shared outdoor activities.
Hunt with Heart offers hunting experiences throughout Texas and even into Canada for members and their families. Providing a respite from their daily medical regimen, youngsters are taught firearm safety and marksmanship and then demonstrate their new skills on the target range. The hunts that follow create bonds between all participants that will never be broken.
In recent years, the organization has also expanded its offerings to include fishing, wing shooting, camping and other outdoor experiences, as well. From the preparation of the tackle, to the boat trips and stories of catches (and the ones that got away), the experience is a first for many youngsters that gives them an experience they talk about long after the trip is over.
