Our Mission Statement

Our event was created to help children who are fighting cancer at the nationally recognized American Family Children's Hospital / UW Carbone Cancer Center in Madison WI. Participants in our event share a passion for children, community involvement and fishing. We are now in our sixth year raising money for the hospital, and we are proud to announce that we have raised over $790,000 so far!! Please help us out by attending our event or donating to Casting for Kids!
