U.S. Olympian Brady Ellison On Mission to X-Out Breast Cancer
Since the start of the 2010 USA Archery season, 2008 U.S. Olympian Brady Ellison is dual focused on the archery X. First and foremost, Ellison is dedicated to notching as many Xs this year to improve his overall ranking within the United States. The 21-year-old originally from Glendale, Ariz., is also trying to X-out breast cancer with Brady’s Shoot for the Cure Campaign.
The campaign has started with a resounding acceptance at the 2010 Arizona Cup where participants and fans stopped by to purchase pink wristbands and make donations. Ellison, who was a member of the 2009 World Championship team for men’s recurve, not only won the Arizona Cup, but raised more than $3,300 for his campaign.
At the Texas Shootout in College Station, Ellison fell short of the platform, but did raise another $565 for his campaign. He established a new national record at the Texas Shootout in the qualifying round, and finished fifth overall.
Up next for the upcoming Olympic hopeful is the first stage of the 2010 World Cup in Porec, Croatia, May 5-8.

Individuals can support Brady by a single event, multiple events, and the entire season. Also, individual can pledge support for Brady’s total Xs, 10s and podium finishes throughout the year.
