“I think this is something wonderful for these children. This is something they will remember and look forward to.” – Parent, Walker County Lake”
This is a C.A.S.T. for Kids event designed to provide children with disabilities, ages 5 – 17, 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 and boating!
The CAST for Kids Foundation will be holding all 2020 events in compliance with CDC, National, State and local guidelines for Covid-19. We will be following these guidelines for the safety, health and well-being of our participants, families, volunteers and staff. If we can hold an event according to state guidelines, as states phase in their re-opening, we will. However, our events may look different than they have in the past. Lunch and awards may be broken into separate groups to enhance social distancing. At a minimum, we will be implementing 6’ social distancing guidelines and the use of protective measures like masks and hand sanitizers. We are confident we have figured out how to provide a safe, relaxing, fun environment for everyone to enjoy at CAST for Kids events in 2020! However, it will be impossible to guarantee the safety of all CAST participants and volunteers. Please consider each of your individual risks associated with the Covid-19 pandemic when making your decision to attend any CAST event.

A beautiful fall day greeted all of the participants and their families as the City of Jasper, Alabama hosted their second C.A.S.T. for Kids event on nearby Walker County Lake. Some very special children were treated to a few hours of fishing and boating out on the lake along with family, friends and the expertise of local fishermen. Several children were able to catch their first fish and enjoy their first ride in a boat thanks to all of the volunteer boaters. Riding and driving fast in the boats seemed to be the most enjoyable activity for most of the children. The children and their families were then treated to a BBQ lunch provided by Sons Smokehouse. After lunch each child was presented their own plaque and photo with their boat captain attached. A great time was had by all. Thanks to the city of Jasper, Alabama for hosting such a fine event! Thank you for your hard working and dedication to the program. We couldn’t do it without all of our amazing event partners.
