We are glad that you are interested in participating in the Fishing Against Cancer tournament – this event will help provide financial assistance to hundreds of cancer patients throughout Connecticut.  Here are some frequently asked questions!

What kind of tournament is this? This is a catch and release tournament.  Official Tournament Rules are here.

How do I sign up?  Please visit www.fishingagainstcancer.org. Once you are there, you can register to form a team or join one. 

Is there a registration fee?  Registration is $100 and includes admission to our lobster bake after the tournament.    

What happens after I register?  Once you register, you will receive a personal fundraising page that you can edit and send out to your friends.  We recommend that you personalize it - let people know why you are participating!

How much do I need to raise?  We ask every team to raise at least $1,000 to qualify for prizes. You can have 4 -6 people on your team – most teams raise an average of $2,000! You will be amazed at how many people support you – everyone has been affected by cancer, so they are happy to donate. All you have to do is ask!

Can I register as an individual? Sure! However, if you register as an individual, you will still be asked to raise $1,000.

How do I fundraise?  Once you have registered, you will receive fundraising tips from Terri Eickel, CCF’s Director of Development & Special Events. Fundraising can seem a little intimidating, so just remember that you are asking because you want to help cancer patients – and that every dollar makes a difference!

Where do I find the Official Tournament Rules? You can find the official tournament rules here.

Where does the money go?  100 % of the money you raised will be used to help Connecticut cancer patients and their families pay everyday living expenses through our CT Cancer Patient Assistance Program. The more you raise, the more we have to give away to cancer patients in Connecticut!
