Hook 'em for Heroes - Kids Fishing - So Much Fun!

This past Saturday, over 200 kids participated in the inaugural fishing tournament, Hook 'em for Heroes, to benefit Heroes for Children.  Special thanks to Craig White for dreaming up this fun event and coordinating everything, and to all of the sponsors: Richardson Fire Fighters Association, The Home Depot, Medical City Children's  Hospital, Genghis Grill, Jimmy John's, Acute Kids Urgent Care, City of Richardson, Texans Credit Union, QuestCare Partners, Academy, B.A.S.S., Cabela's, Owens, Atomic Design & Consulting.  The kids had a blast with all of the fun activities... here are just a few of the pics to tell the story of the day!

What a wonderful day that was. I had the honor of planning and seeing this event from its birth to the day of the event. I was overwhelmed by the huge support from all of our volunteers. I know it was hot but seeing the excitement from all of those kids fishing and catching fish was well worth it. The City of Richardson is now very aware of Heroes for Children. Keep your eyes out for more events and the planning is already started for 2011 Hookem for Heroes in the spring. A huge thanks goes out to the girls at HFC for guiding and directing me with this event, thanks Michelle and Jenny!
