Texas Farm Bureau Insurance Presents Lake Leon C.A.S.T. For Kids

“We loved it so much! It was a huge blessing to receive the equipment and the boat captains were so patient and motivated to teach the kids a new skill. My son loved fishing and felt real special receiving the plaque, he hung it up on his wall as soon as we got home! More events like this are needed!”

“The event gave our son a fishing pole and tackle box. Because of this, his dad took him to the fishing supply store to get a few supplies. He is so excited to go fishing again! We will need help, but he has shown an interest to outdoor recreation, which is a huge change. We are so happy! – .”

This is a C.A.S.T. for Kids event designed to provide children with special needs, ages 5-17, the opportunity to enjoy a quality outdoor recreational experience through the sport of fishing. Not all locations are conducive to hosting boating events. This event gives participants the opportunity to fish from shore.

Coronavirus Update: The C.A.S.T. for Kids Foundation is aware of the growing Coronavirus situation nationwide. Our hearts go out to all those affected by it.  The safety of our participants and volunteers at C.A.S.T. for Kids events has always been our top priority, and we will continue to monitor the situation closely. The Center for Disease Control issued a statement on March 15, 2020 recommending limiting public gatherings to groups of 50 people or less for 8 weeks.  The CAST for Kids Foundation will be following these CDC Guidelines, and we are postponing all events for the next 8 weeks.   Lake Leon has been rescheduled for September 19th 2020.
