Fishing Funds the Cure

As one of the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation’s longest-running events, Fishing Funds the Cure has been reeling in funds for pediatric cancer research. Whether it is a corporate collaboration, participating in one of our many salt or freshwater tournaments around the country, taking part in our nationwide six-month-long All American tournament, or creating an event of your own, there is something for everyone.

Fishing Funds the Cure is designed to be family-friendly, and each event includes amazing activities and world-class fishing.  Whether it is relaxing at the beach, an afternoon in the spa, or networking at a favorite eatery, our event locations are carefully curated with our supporters in mind.  Fine dining, entertainment, and live and silent auctions accompany inspirational stories from families and children that reinforce the importance of the need to fund more research. 

In addition to sponsorships, companies can showcase their commitment to the community through point-of-sale campaigns, featured products, and specialty promotions to support pediatric cancer research.

Participate in One of Our Fishing Tournaments

Compete as a team against other anglers as you are raising awareness or funds for pediatric cancer. Our inshore fishing tournaments have become a favorite event among master fishermen and sponsors! Highlights of our tournaments include a kid’s fashion show and an evening Gala. The fashion show is for pediatric cancer fighters to spend some time away from hospital visits and treatments and simply enjoy being a kid. The evening Gala is a resort casual dinner with high-end auctions to bring tournament sponsors and anglers together to support the research needed to find a cure for childhood cancer.

Fish for Kids Like Jake

Jake Mulvihill was a kid that loved fishing. At age six, Jake started to experience seizures. Doctors discovered a benign tumor in Jake’s brain which they began to monitor. At age 13, Jake’s tumor became malignant and he was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of brain cancer.

Jake went through 7 brain surgeries, weekly chemo, and 25 rounds of radiation. He never gave up. Jake did what he had to do to keep fighting, and he did it with a smile and thumbs up. On March 19, 2020, cancer took over.

 Jake may have lost his battle with cancer, but his strength and optimism inspire the 43 children diagnosed with cancer every day, to fight and never give up.

 We carry on his memory through Fishing Funds the Cure.
