Smithfield Foods and Victory Junction Unveil New Indoor Archery Facility

RANDLEMAN, N.C., May 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Victory Junction, a children’s camp committed to enriching the lives of children with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses by providing life-changing camp experiences, unveiled the Smithfield Foods Archery Center. The camp’s new indoor facility is funded by a $500,000 gift from the Smithfield Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Smithfield Foods, Inc.

“Our partnership with Smithfield is so important to Victory Junction because we simply can’t serve 10,000 kids a year without the help of our generous partners and donors,” said Chad Coltrane, chief executive officer of Victory Junction. “We now have an amazing indoor venue for archery, open in time for the start of the 2018 summer camp sessions. We look forward to watching our campers of all ages and abilities enjoy this fun and popular activity.”

The new and improved facility provides a safe gathering place for campers to learn archery, make friends, and enjoy the adventures and experiences of camp life. The Smithfield Foods Archery Center replaces a former outdoor facility that was subject to flooding and was unavailable during inclement weather.

“Thanks to the vision and compassion of the Petty Family, Victory Junction is changing lives and we’re delighted to be a part of it,” said Kenneth M. Sullivan, president and chief executive officer of Smithfield Foods. “Smithfield is proud to support Victory Junction with the gift of the new archery center. We hope this new facility inspires campers to realize their own unique and incredible abilities.”

Victory Junction was the dream of Adam Petty, a fourth-generation race car driver from the famous Petty Family and a rising star in the sport. After Adam's tragic passing from a racing accident in 2000, the Petty Family realized his dream of a camp to serve children with serious medical conditions through the opening of Victory Junction in 2004.

“The Smithfield Foods Archery Center is a tremendous addition to Victory Junction and we’re grateful to Smithfield for making this new facility a reality for our campers,” said Richard Petty, NASCAR legend and Victory Junction board member. “For nearly 15 years, Victory Junction has been the embodiment of everything Adam dreamed of in a camp to serve children with challenging medical conditions. I know Adam would be proud and gratified to see what Victory Junction has become and to see the indoor archery facility that we celebrate today.”
