Casting for Recovery, a non-profit organization offering support and educational retreats for women with breast cancer, is pleased to announce it is the grateful beneficiary of an exclusive Simms Fishing Products fundraiser during breast cancer awareness month. Simms, an industry leader in fishing footwear, apparel and gear, is manufacturing a special run of wading belts expressly to benefit Casting for Recovery. Simms created 250 pink wading belts to be sold during the month of October at Simmsfishing.com. Profits from the sale of the belts will go directly toward Casting for Recovery retreats.
“October is a special month for us, because so much attention worldwide is given toward programs for women with breast cancer,” says CfR executive director Whitney Milhoan. “And it became even more special when Simms stepped up with the pink wading belt promotion, because not only does the gesture send a clear message that the fishing industry cares about our mission, but it also allows us to keep strengthening our programs and helping more women with breast cancer get out on the river.”
“Simms is pleased to work with an organization like Casting for Recovery. By helping women with breast cancer and promoting our passion of fishing, a promotion like this is doubly satisfying for all of us at Simms,” says Diane Bristol, Simms’ senior director of marketing and brand management.
