EUGENE, Ore. – Bowtech, manufacturer of the world’s finest compound bows and archery equipment, has launched the ultimate tribute to legendary Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle with the introduction of a limited edition “The Legend” bow. With each purchase, Bowtech will make a donation to the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation (CKFF). The bows will be available at archery dealers nationwide in mid-July.
The foundation provides meaningful, relationship-building experiences to service members, first responders and their families upon return from duty. The experiences provided by the foundation are designed to give those it is assisting the opportunity to reconnect and remember what they love about each other, thus empowering families to thrive.
“Bowtech has been an incredible supporter of the American Sniper film and eager to develop programs to support the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation,” said Kyle’s widow, Taya. “We are excited for the launch of The Legend bow and hope supporters of Bowtech and the CKFF will consider this bow when preparing for the 2015 hunting season.”
The Legend bow is built on Bowtech’s most advanced platform and features all of the company’s industry-leading technologies designed to deliver an accurate, smooth and fast shot with every draw. The Legend bow comes with a unique Kryptek® Typhon™ finish and features red, white and blue bowstrings. Each bow has a special edition serial number to commemorate its limited availability. Taya Kyle will receive the first bow in the series, CK001.
Kyle’s story became known through the 2012 book American Sniper and the 2014 film of the same title. Bowtech was involved with the film from the beginning and is now partnering with the CKFF to support service members and first responders.
CKFF was launched on Veterans Day 2014 and was the vision of Chris Kyle prior to his death. Taya, as Executive Director of CKFF, continues to work tirelessly to extend Chris’s legacy through the Foundation.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for Bowtech to support military men and women and their families,” said Scott Henrikson, Bowtech Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Patriotism and the military are a part of Bowtech’s heritage, and we’re honored to partner with Taya and the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation to offer an outstanding, high-performance bow with donations going to a very important cause.”
Bowtech also offers a Chris Kyle “The Legend” hat online at www.bowtecharcherygear.com with 100% of the proceeds going to the CKFF. For more information on Bowtech Archery or The Legend bow, visit www.BowtechArchery.com.
