“My son was so excited the weeks before the event. He doesn’t talk very much but he was telling everybody about his trip to Horsetooth and the fishing and the food. My favorite was seeing that smile on my son face and see how much pleasure and fun he had!!! All the volunteers went over and above for him to make sure he had a good time.” – Parent of Participant, Horsetooth Reservoir

“My most memorable part of the event was being able to see the excitement in the kids’ faces while on the boat fishing. Just being lucky enough to hook into fish was just a bigger plus. Having to witness these kids first time setting a hook and landing a fish on their own was just an amazing experience not just for me but for the kids as well. I can’t thank the organization enough, and I appreciate the opportunity to have been part of the event.” – Volunteer Boater, Horsetooth Reservoir
