“My son normally does not stay at events – they are too loud or too overwhelming for him.  This is the first event that he has stayed for the entire time – he didn’t even want to leave! He is normally very anxious and does not connect with people because of his anxiety.  However, the laid-back environment and the quiet allowed him to be himself! This is the first time he has ever received an award in front of people on his own! I couldn’t believe that he wanted to get his award on his own:)  He hugged his award all the way home!!  Thank you so much for making this a possibility!!” – Parent of Participant, Lake Charles

 “I felt so blessed to be with the families and see the joy on their faces as their children were honored and valued. I thank the Lord for this ministry that makes good memories for the children and their families. One mom told me that her daughter was counting down the days on her calendar until she could come out and fish, she was so excited! May the Lord bless and protect!” – Shore Volunteer, Lake Charles

This is a C.A.S.T. for Kids event designed to provide children with disabilities, ages 6 – 19, the opportunity to enjoy a quality outdoor recreational experience through the sport of fishing. Take to the water with C.A.S.T. for an unforgettable morning of fishing!
