Henry Repeating Arms has celebrated the season by delivering plenty of holiday hope to the family of 2-year-old Kellen Findley of Dozier, Alabama. Diagnosed with Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma (striated muscle) cancer, Kellen is facing 42 treatments and his family no shortage of costs—which should be significantly lessened thanks to the donation of 42 custom Henry Golden Boy rifles to help raise funds for his treatment.
When Kellen’s Uncle, Jay Findley, learned his nephew’s softball-size tumor was cancerous and could not be removed at that time because it was so large, he wanted to do something to help Kellen, his parents and family. The result was a benefit auction. A fan of Henry rifles, Jay reached out to Henry President Anthony Imperato who responded by donating 42 Henry Golden Boy “Fight Like A Kid” Tribute Edition .22 caliber rifles. The guns will all carry the “Fight Like A Kid” laser engraving on the buttstock and will have special serial numbers KELLEN01-KELLEN42.
“We have been continually amazed by the generosity and devotion to helping others that has been shown by America’s gun owners, particularly the more than 3 million dedicated GunBroker.com users,” Mr. Imperato said. “When I suggested the $4,200 “Buy Now” price, a few folks thought I was overly optimistic. You just watch, I told them.”
The Golden Boy pictured below is the first of the 42 guns to be sold, and is currently available on GunBroker.com. The gun carries serial number KELLEN01 and special “Fight Like A Kid” logo and lettering on the butt stock.
