MCCORMICK, S.C. (WRDW) -- A local woman is shooting to the top in archery.
Kinga Kiss-Johnson picked up her first bow in 2010 after she was injured serving in Afghanistan.
Despite her injuries, she quickly grew from rookie to champion. Now, she's headed to the Paralympic Archery World Championships in Bangkok, Thailand.
Kinga says even though competing is fun, to her, archery means so much more.
"It was a way of therapy for me, but archery became something for me to do to get me out of the house, and little by little, step by step going back to civilian world," she explained.
Kinga has to raise $6,000 by September 21st or else she can't go to the tournament.
So, tomorrow Buffalo Wild Wings is holding a fundraiser. If you go to eat, and mention Kinga's name or Champions Made From Adversity, ten percent of what you spend will go to her travel fund.
