Event description
Join us for a day of fishing and family-friendly competition! Your support will directly make an impact in carrying on Wes' legacy.

About this event

As a 100% volunteer-based 501c3 nonprofit charity organization, The Wes Strong Foundation's purpose is to provide help for families facing pediatric cancer at all stages of their battle, as well as support for our environment and injured wildlife. Our mission is to carry on the legacy of a 12-year-old boy who was determined to change the world before passing from neuroblastoma, and continue his dream of helping others and our planet. Wes fought for 7 years and battled 5 relapses, but despite that, he was determined, passionate, and unstoppable. Because of that, we are forever inspired by Wes.

Our Inspiration:

Wes is the inspiration behind The Wes Strong Foundation. A boy, wise beyond his years, Wes was diagnosed in 2011 at the age of 5 with stage 4 neuroblastoma. After 5 relapses and a continuous 7 year battle, Wes passed away November, 3, 2018. Wes dreamed of becoming a marine biologist, and from a young age he always tried to put others before himself. He cared deeply for all living creatures and was passionate about helping others fighting the same battle he was. Despite being here for such a short time, he touched thousands of lives around the world through his compassion for others and his selfless outlook on life. We will always try to carry on his legacy.

Wes Pak, forever 12
