Fish With A Hero is hosting its ninth annual event this year to honor veterans who have served
the country. Twenty-five disabled and wounded veterans will fish some of the best spots in the world in the beautiful waters off the shores of Islamorada.
“It’s just amazing to see the difference this program can make in a disabled veteran’s life. It’s just a small way to give back to those that gave so much to our country,” said Larry Kendzior, executive director of Fish With A Hero.
Participants will be fishing on charters provided by professional captains at World Wide
Sportsman in Islamorada on Tuesday, Sept. 13 through Friday, Sept. 16. The event will be preceded by a Hero’s Welcome Reception on Sept. 13 at 5:30 p.m. at the Islamorada Fish Company. The community is encouraged to attend and greet these veterans.
