Keith has been catching a fish everyday with a lure since April 1, 2011. On December 26, 2013 it will be 1,000 days and the finale for his adventure. The mission has been to promote and encourage kids getting outdoors and fishing. There are many reasons why kids getting off the couch, setting down the video controller, and going fishing is a great idea. It's an activity that can stimulate a child's brain, promotes walking and physical activity, engages them in learning about nature, allows them to see and experience the beauty of nature that God has created for us, and opens their eyes to the precious natural resources we all must be mindful to protect for future generations.
This final effort is to send Keith out with a bang! Keith has partnered with his church, Central United Methodist Church in Waco, TX to help support this finale. Any amount is appreciated. Our goal is raise enough funds to provide a rod, reel, and tackle to 1,000 kids. Kids from the Waco Parks and Recreation programs and also children of military dependants at Fort Hood will be the lucky recipients of these gifts.
