About Fishing For the Cure

Created by a small group of Alexandria Industries employees, the Fishing For the Cure Ice Fishing Challenge is about everyday people making a difference in the fight against cancer. At its first event held in 2007, 112 people fished and raised $620. In 2019, nearly 1,300 people came to fish, including 208 children age 12 or younger. They raised $60,000 for the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life. The goal for the 2020 event is to raise $75,000. Fishing For the Cure has donated more than $300,000 to find a cure for cancer over the event’s years. Details on or Facebook - Fishing For the Cure.
