Patriot Sporting Challenge
Mission: To conduct fun, fair, competitive sporting events and activities to support charities which benefit the families of American military and first responders.
Goal: To develop support and partnerships that allow Patriot Sporting Challenge to provide educational opportunities for the families of our fallen and disabled military heroes and first responders while enhancing the visibility and vitality of the Northeast Texas region and surrounding communities.
Patriot Sporting Challenge (PSC) held its first two annual events in 2017 and 2018 to benefit the families of those served by the Folds of Honor Foundation. Folds of Honor is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which provides scholarships to the families of fallen or severely wounded American military. In both PSC events, over 40 teams, each with 4 members, competed in shooting, fishing, and golf activities headquartered at The Links at Land’s End, a world class golf course adjacent to Lake Fork in Northeast Texas. Thanks to PSC’s numerous Partners, medal and other sponsors, local businesses and restaurants, and with the help of many community volunteers, $175,000 was donated to the Folds of Honor Foundation for scholarships from the first two events.
For 2019 and beyond, PSC is expanding its scope to include the families of fallen or severely injured first responders in Northeast Texas and the surrounding area. Its first planned event, “PSC Legacy Day”, has been scheduled for October 5, 2019. PSC will partner with the Trinity Oaks, another 501(c)3 organization which has provided outdoors oriented programs for over 1500 youth and families since formed in 2007. To allow an orderly start-up of this new PSC event, the annual Lake Fork Challenge will shift from the fall of 2019 to a spring event in 2020.
More details on the 2019 PSC Legacy Day and the 2020 Lake Fork Challenge will be provided as they are developed.
