“The warm reception; the special attention from our dedicated fishing guide and his patience and love, the thrill of catching their first fish, being together to make the memory we will never forget, the presence of a professional fisherman to make these often overlooked kids feel seen, the award ceremony where their thoughts were validated. Everything was love!!! – Parent of Participant, Murphy Park
