OAKHURST — Yosemite Axe Throwing and the Hamilton family are hosting a fundraiser on Feb. 9 to help save the life of seven-year-old Kalel Hamilton.
Kalel, who lives in Ahwahnee, suffers from a terminal muscle wasting disease known as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. His father Rick’s marathon-running efforts to help raise funding for Duchenne MD research was featured in a recent SNO story.
The all-day fundraiser will happen at Yosemite Axe Throwing, located at 40761 Hwy. 41, in Oakhurst.
The new axe-centric club, owned and run by local timber sports superstar Nate Hodges, just opened about a month ago.
The fundraiser will conclude with an axe throwing tournament beginning at 6 p.m.
All are welcome to rent a lane during the day — and participate in the tournament.
- Lane Rental: 1 hour, $30/Person
- 2 hours, $40/Person
- Tournament Entry: $20
*Tournament participants will also have a chance to rent a lane for one hour at a discounted $20 rate for practice before the tournament.
Participants can sign up for the axe throwing tournament by emailing FlexForKal@gmail.com or a sign up sheet will be available at Yosemite Axe Throwing.
Tournament prizes include a $100 gift certificate towards Carter Creek Farm’s organically raised pork and other prizes to be announced soon.
