“I saw firsthand that kids who otherwise had challenges with things like focus and concentration thrived with both when challenged with the prospect of catching a fish. I also saw kids getting over their fears right in front of me as they worked to understand the natural world.” – Shore Volunteer, Lake Washington

2017 Event Recap
An overwhelming number of boat captains (42) joined us this year to take out 33 kids and their families fishing on the waters of Lake Washington. We also had two new volunteer groups that added fabulous help on shore – a big thanks to the Northwest University Softball Team and the Valley Medical nurses group. Many fish were caught, including a 4-pound bass! Wow! Lunch included awesome fish cookies for the kids, and the SeaGals joined us again for the award ceremony to celebrate the kids.
