“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”..
