Diamond Archery recently partnered with Bass Pro Shops and the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Kodak, Tenn., to grant the wish of Zach Martin, a 13-year-old from the area recently diagnosed with Hypertrophy, a life-threatening condition which enlarges the volume of internal organs.
Zach’s wish was to go fishing and learn archery, and Diamond Archery contributed by giving him a brand new Diamond Infinite Edge bow and a Diamond banner in addition to making him an honorary member of the Diamond Pro Staff. Diamond Archery employees from the president to the production team personally signed the banner with well wishes and blessings.
Rick Phillips, a member of the Diamond pro staff, helped coordinate the delivery of the bow and spent the day teaching Zach to shoot.
“We heard Zach’s story from Rick and feel blessed that we were able to participate,” said Diamond Director of Marketing Samuel Coalson. “We’re thrilled we could help raise the spirits of a young man and his family going through difficult times, and we hope that his new Infinite Edge brings him many more hours of fun on the range.”
The Infinite Edge, introduced in 2013, is an ideal bow for youth archers because it can be easily adjusted for varying draw weights and lengths as the shooter grows stronger.
