“It will be a moment I will never forget. I will carry with me forever. It’s all about the kids having fun and learning how to fish.” – Shore Volunteer, Miller Park Pond


“Thank you, Thank you! For the kindness and patience shown to my son, he had a FANTASTIC day, and this makes mom VERY happy.  He also suffers with depression and has no family around him, so he never gets to do anything like this. He has been asking to go fishing but I had no idea where to start, permits etc. This was just fantastic, and I’m blown away by everything that you did for him!!” – Parent of Participant, Miller Park Pond

This is a C.A.S.T. for Kids event designed to provide children with disabilities 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.
