Anglers Compete for Charity in Virtual Fishing Tournament #CastingforNubKids Contest Runs Through November 3rd DUQUOIN, IL (October 14, 2020) - NubAbility® Athletics Foundation announced today that the organization is holding a virtual bass fishing tournament during the month of October, with all proceeds going towards camps for limb-different children. Fishermen can participate in the #CastingforNubKids event by registering and submitting competition entries through the FishDonkey mobile app. Final submissions are due by Tuesday, November 3 at 6:00 pm. NubAbility helps limb-different children gain courage and confidence through participation in sporting and outdoor activities. “We are currently working on expanding our NubAbility Outdoors program, which features fishing, archery and shooting,” said Sam Kuhnert, NubAbility founder and executive director. “As school sports continue to face restrictions, it is so important to give children with limb loss an opportunity to engage in physical activity. When limb-different kids gain mastery over a physical skill, they take the knowledge that they overcome obstacles into other areas of their lives. We hope Southern Illinois fishermen will support our work by signing up for the tournament and casting for a good cause.” HOW IT WORKS #CastingforNubKids is a virtual bass fishing tournament. To get started, download the FishDonkey mobile app, then search for #CastingforNubKids and sign up for the event. Fish any pond, river or lake permitted by law and catch those bass. Submit a photo of your catch next to a measuring device through the FishDonkey app before 6:00 pm on November 3rd. Largest bass wins! We will award two medals, one for children (ages 4 - 17) and one for adults (ages 18+). The registration fee for this competition is $25/person.

ABOUT NUBABILITY NubAbility® Athletics Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit that operates a national series of camps designed to get children with congenital or traumatic limb loss out of the stands, off the bench and into competitive mainstream sports. The viral video Boy With No Arms Does Box Jump, which received national media attention in 2019, illustrates the power and pride our campers experience when they overcome obstacles to achieve their goals. NubAbility participants leave camp confident they can win at athletics and in life. Founded in 2010, NubAbility will offer eight camps and clinics across the United States in 2020. The organization’s volunteer coaching team is made up of 80 limb-different collegiate and professional athletes in 22 sports. For more information, visit nubability.org. ###
