Let's bring C.A.S.T. for Kids to our community!
To enrich the lives of children with special needs in our community, a C.A.S.T. for Kids event is being planned! It will be a joyful day of fishing that brings children with special needs, their families, and community volunteers together for an exciting day of fun and inspiration. Every child will be given an event t-shirt and hat, rod and reel, and tackle box. Once fitted with a life jacket, each child and their parent/guardian will be paired with a volunteer angler for an enjoyable morning of fishing. Upon returning from the water, a shore lunch will be followed by an unforgettable awards ceremony where each child will be honored and celebrated. As each child will be called up by name to receive an award plaque with their photo, they will be greeted by cheers from the crowd. Each child will then get the microphone to share their fishing stories in front of the group. There won't be a dry eye in the place!
C.A.S.T. for Kids events provide communities the opportunity to celebrate the special abilities of children. Parents/guardians witness their children overcoming adversity to enjoy the thrill of fishing. Often parents/guardians discover that fishing can be a family hobby in that every family member can participate. Your support will help us bring this experience to up to 40 children with special needs in our community!
Since 1991, the C.A.S.T. for Kids Foundation has served over 131,200 children and 2,250 warriors by hosting over 1,230 events with over 79,500 volunteers in 30 states. We look forward to serving the children in our community with your help!
