Jacksonville Fishermen Help Find a Cure for Colon Cancer

Fishing tourney at Jacksonville Park to raise funds for colon cancer research





JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Aug. 13, 2013) – Jacksonville fisherman will help find a cure for colon cancer during the Seventh Annual Anglers for a Cure Inshore Slam Fishing Tournament on September 7. Proceeds benefit the Borland-Groover Clinic Foundation for Research and Education.

Anglers for a Cure was founded by Jordan Carroll and his close friend, Matt Hahnemann, to honor Carroll's father, Doug, a local angler who passed away of stage IV colon cancer just 2 weeks after the inaugural tournament. To date, Anglers for a Cure has raised more than $60,000 to further colon cancer research and education.

The young men sought to combine their love of fishing with a fierce dedication to helping find a cure for a disease, which claims the lives of over 50,000 Americans each year. If detected early enough, colon cancer is 90 percent curable.

Entry fee is $65 per person for first-time tournament participants and $55 per person for returning participants. Entry fee for junior angler participants is $100 for a parent-child team. Prizes for the anglers include more than $5,000 in cash prizes. Categories include: first place, second place, third place, mystery fish, largest sheesphead and junior angler.

The tournament begins at first light at the Jim King Park and Boat Ramp at Sisters Creek Marina, Jacksonville, Fla.

The Captains' Meeting is slated for September 6 at 6 p.m. at The Mudville Grille located on Beach Boulevard. The meeting is mandatory for participants.
