This year our friends at Casting for Recovery are celebrating their 25th Anniversary! The mission of the organization is to enhance the lives of women with breast cancer by connecting them to each other and nature through the therapeutic sport of fly fishing.
CfR started with the idea to take women with breast cancer out of a clinical environment and teach them to fly fish. Breast cancer impacts all of our families and communities and sadly, for each woman CfR serves, they are turning 3 women away. Women in the US face a one-in-eight lifetime risk of developing breast cancer. In the United States alone, 250,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year.
This year CfR is planning to host 52 retreats in 45 states with the generous help of over 1800 dedicated volunteers. SIMMS is proud to support Casting for Recovery and the 10,000+ women they have served but there is still plenty more work to be done.
To celebrate this monumental milestone and to honor all of the women CfR has served over the years, Simms has donated 150 MidCurrent jackets (men’s and women’s) with a custom embroidered Casting for Recovery fly. 100% of the proceeds of every jacket sold goes will go directly back to CfR and the great work they do to connect more women with breast cancer to the healing power of nature.
