Striving to enrich the lives of differently abled children


Our Mission

Lets get kids hooked on fishing!

The F.I.S.H. organization strives to enrich the lives of differently abled children by providing the opportunity to spend time outdoors and get hooked on fishing.  Each special angler is paired with an experienced fisherman to fish from shore. Together, they will try to catch the big one!

Our Inspiration 



Lucas and his beautiful smile; Peyton, Alexis, Addi, Travis and Lucas (below)

Lucas was the first kid with disabilities we met. The first thing that we noticed about Lucas was his amazing smile, and it melted our hearts. We met him back in 2014 at a color run, and he changed our lives forever! Since that day, we both knew we wanted to spend our time with children who have disabilities. Our goal is to always put a smile on a kids face just like how Lucas did to us! Lucas continues to be an inspiration to everyone that meets him. Lucas and his family plan on being at the first FISH event in June!
