Honoring A Legend: USA Shooting Launches Lones Wigger Endowment & Legacy Project COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (February 16, 2017)

http://www.usashooting.org/library/images/Wigger_Art.1.Final.jpg

The word “legend” is an overused descriptor in the American lexicon, particularly when describing our sports heroes and all-time greats. In the case of three-time Olympic medalist, 24-time World Champion, 33-time world-record holder, and 91-time National Champion Lones Wigger, it is truly the only word fitting enough. There’s no hyperbole when using legend to describe perhaps the best marksman the shooting sports has ever seen. 

 

USA Shooting has chosen 2017 as the year they’ll honor Lones Wigger’s enduring legacy to the sport with the official launch of the Lones Wigger Endowment and Legacy Project. That initial effort began last week with announcement of the Lones Wigger/USAS Jr Olympic Endowment, in partnership with the MidwayUSA Foundation. Money put toward that endowment will be used to support youth and Junior Olympic initiatives in the future. Every dollar raised in 2017 is being matched 2-to-1 by the generosity of the MidwayUSA Foundation, which means that for every $1,000 donated in the name of Lones Wigger, $3,000 will go towards benefiting youth shooting programs in the future.

Help honor the legend of Lones Wigger with your generous donation today!

His records and accomplishments are as numerous as they are lofty, a career résumé never to be matched. A four-time Olympian with three Olympic medals and a total of 111 international medals, Wigger was named one of the U.S. Olympic Committee’s 100 Golden Olympians in 1996, as well as earning induction into the USOC’s Hall of Fame in 2008.

 

All donation amounts will be accepted for the Lones Wigger Endowment & Legacy Project and a special Lones Wigger pin is being created to provide to donors at all levels. Additionally, six primary donation levels have been established with donors contributing at those designated levels set to receive authentic donor premiums showcasing Lones Wigger's career accomplishments. Donor premiums can be used to further the conversation with others about Wigger's legendary career and further supporting the project. Donor premiums are currently being created and will be unveiled in a pending announcement.
