Children in Utah got to go fishing and try their luck with a fun event.
Utah children with special needs were given the opportunity to experience fishing at the 25th Annual Kids with Disabilities Fishing Day.
Founders for the program teamed up with the National Forest Service 25 years ago to give children a chance to fish. The very first fishing day had only 15 participants. This year, more than 1,000 children from Utah county showed up to cast a line.
This highly anticipated community event has lots of support from businesses. Fish for the event are donated by the Division of Wildlife Resources and Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife. Lunch is also provided by a local grocer. Representatives from Cabela’s and Sportsman’s Warehouse are on hand to help the kids through out the event.
This annual event puts a smile on everyone’s face, especially those who need it most.
