Casting for Hope is committed to providing limited financial assistance to women in western North Carolina who are living with ovarian or other gynecological cancers. But more than that, Casting for Hope is committed to attending to the emotional and spiritual needs of these same women and their families through fly-fishing retreats, fly-tying and rod-building clinics, and other avenues of personal and family re-creation.
Our financial assistance focuses on women who are experiencing economic hardships due to treatment costs, while our retreat experiences serve women and their families and friends regardless of financial need. Retreats focus on emotional and spiritual healing in the out of doors, chasing trout with a fly rod, and experiencing comfort by running waters.
Casting for Hope’s flagship fundraiser is our Gold Level fly fishing competition, one of only four in the United States. For complete tournament details, visit the “Gearing Up” tab above! Come fish with us or help sponsor us if you’re so inclined!
We additionally host events throughout the year to support our cause. For more information on upcoming events, click on “Gearing Up.”
Through relevant education, faithful fundraising, authentic community support, reciprocally beneficial relationships, and creative problem solving, Casting for Hope will attend to the financial, emotional, and spiritual needs of women living with ovarian and other gynecological cancers in western North Carolina.
Creating communities where individuals’ needs are met, service gaps are filled, and neighbors are nurtured.
