An unusual combination of fishing derby and fund-raising walk, the event aims to raise money for the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation, offering support to breast cancer patients and their families.
The idea for “strolling and trolling” was Shannon Tate’s and Stephanie Reynolds’s after they completed a fund-raising walk in Providence. “We had so much fun, but it was hard on some of the older ladies,” Shannon says, “so we are making our walk much shorter — a little over one-and-a-half miles.”
The day will begin with breakfast from 6 to 9:30 a.m. at American Legion Post 27 on Thelma Drive in Hope Valley. The cost is $7 per person, and 100 percent of the proceeds with go to the Gemma foundation, Shannon says.
The fishing tournament is scheduled to start at 7 a.m., and the entry fee will be between $5 and $10, depending on the number of anglers entered.
The stroll through Hope Valley is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. Donations will be accepted, and T-shirts will be available for sale for $15 in advance or at the walk.
