Wichita, Kansas– Pass It On – Outdoor Mentors, Inc. was awarded $3,000 in a grant from the Topeka-based Justin Corbet Memorial Shooting Sports Foundation, Inc. These funds will be used to recruit more mentors who will spend time outdoors with a child. The Pass It On program is designed to help at-risk children have the opportunity to experience the outdoors.Justin Corbet was a young man whose life was tragically cut short, who truly loved the great outdoors and shooting sports.

The Justin Corbet Memorial Shooting Sports Foundation, a 501(c)3 corporation, is dedicated to his memory and is committed to providing leadership, support and financial assistance to qualified programs and individuals dedicated to providing family oriented hunting, shooting and educational activities to youth, women and persons with disabilities.
The Justin Corbet Memorial Shooting Sports Foundation was established in late 2005 by family friends and associates who share Justin’s love of the out-of-doors and a willingness to help others with the experience.

The Pass It On – Outdoor Mentors program fits well with the mission of the Justin Corbet Memorial Shooting Sports Foundation, giving children who would more than likely never have the opportunity to experience the outdoors that Justin loved without the help of a caring adult mentor to show them the way.

“Sportsmen and women, like those who support the Justin Corbet Memorial Shooting Sports Foundation, are making a huge difference for children across the country,” stated Mike Christensen, President of Pass It On – Outdoor Mentors, Inc. “When we match a mentor with a child, that child then has a great opportunity to learn to hunt and fish and camp and hike and generally enjoy the outdoors that we all know and love.”
