Catch a Cure

This summer, in conjunction with the people at Outdoor Sportsman Group through Florida Sportsman, with help from people from Buff headwearSunology Natural Sunscreen, and others, I’ll be fishing my way throughout Florida to raise awareness about the dangers of prolonged sun exposure to anglers and everyone at risk. I’ll be showcasing smart ways to stay safe while enjoying the outdoors.  I’ll be hoping to raise what money I can for the Melanoma Research Foundation in the process as well. The details about the project are still in the works, but let me thank all of you in advance who read, watch or help. My father, after a two-year battle with the disease, passed from melanoma in 2013. I’m hoping, in his memory, to make a difference, no matter how small. Through education and self awareness we can prevent this deadly disease from taking more lives. My dad was one of my best friends and I miss him every day, and with “Catch a Cure,” I’m hoping that in the future, more 29-year-old kids have a father to call, see and spend time with because, through information, education and preventative measures, he’s still there. Whether you just read and follow my blog or you can actually contribute anything at all, your interest is sincerely appreciated. And if you’re in Florida and want to fish, don’t hesitate to let me know. I’ll be posting more details and updates here. – Rick
