Racing for Cancer (R4C) is the named charity for this year’s fishing tournament. R4C was founded by South Florida resident and American race car driver Ryan Hunter-Reay after losing his mother to cancer several years ago. The goal is to simply beat cancer. R4C commits 100% of net proceeds to promote and launch early detection and prevention initiatives in the battle against cancer. Many of the recipients and programs created by the funding are based in South Florida. Ryan is the 2014 Indy 500 Champion, 2012 Indy Car Series Champion and a two-time ESPY award winner for best Driver on the World Overall in 2013 and 2014. Ryan is an avid race car driver in various competitions and an avid South Florida boater and fisherman. He will be joining us and competing along side us for the tournament. 

Ten percent 10% of all entries & calcuttas as well as funds contributed by our Generous Sponsors will be donated to R4C in addition to all Raffle & Auction Funds raised.
