This is a non-profit run to honor Mary Lynn Hardesty and benefit Casting for Hope, an organization which provides financial assistance and event/retreat organization to women affected by gynecological cancers. Their most valued service is an annual fly-fishing retreat, which brings together women battling gynecological cancers. Mary Lynn felt very fortunate to have taken part in this retreat and especially appreciated the relationships she built with the founders of CFH and the other women in attendance. Visit https://www.castingforhope.org for more information.
