CAST for Kids event planned at Dayton boat dock on July 16

The Catch (Christian Anglers Together Can Help) Ministry will host its 2016 CAST for Kids for special-needs youngsters ages 5 to 17 on July 16.

The CAST (Catch a Special Thrill) event will be held from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Dayton boat dock on Chickamauga Lake in Dayton.

The nonprofit CAST for Kids program offers children who “may not otherwise get the opportunity” a chance to enjoy fishing and the outdoors. Parents must accompany youngsters.

“We want to make this day special for these kids, so we need as much help as we can get,” noted Kevin Johnson, spokesman for CATCH.

“We need volunteers to help with food; gifts; and people willing to take children out on a boat. There will be someone with the child so you are not on your own. We also need sponsors for the children. 

“It costs about $75 per child. This covers insurance, prizes, T-shirts, trophies and plaques,” he said.

The first 40 volunteers to register will receive a free T-shirt. Both volunteers and participants have to register.

Boaters and dry-land volunteers are needed to help with the event. Individuals wishing to participate may go to castforkids.org to register or donate.

For more information, contact Kevin Johnson at 423-715-3027.

CATCH is in its 10th year of “loving Christ, reaching out and loving people through the love of fishing.”

CAST for Kids is in its 25th year.
