Casting For Recovery Retreat 2008

CRF Retreat 2008

I recently attended a Casting for Recovery Retreat in Allemuchy NJ so that I may bring a retreat to the South Jersey area in September 2009.  In case you have not heard of this non-profit organization, you may visit their website at www.castingforrecovery.org .  As a past participant in 2003,  I can attest to the wonderful weekend it offers to its participants to learn fly-fishing.  Founded in 1996 by Mrs. Perkins of the Orvis Company of Manchester, VT,  Casting for Recovery is for breast cancer survivors so they may learn how to fly fish.  I will be blogging updates on this upcoming retreat.

Hi... thanks for mentioning Casting for Recovery and The Orvis Company!

Just to clarify, The Orvis Company was founded in 1856 by Charles Orvis in Manchester, VT. The Perkins bought the company in the mid-1960's.

Thanks, again!

Gerri, your words are golden...glad to know that you're working to help us expand to serve women in New Jersey! 

 

As background: in 2009, Casting for Recovery is planning to schedule 44 retreats in 27 states across the United States.  We have grown tremendously since our founding in 1996--the Orvis Company has now been joined as a national sponsor by The Hartford and UnderArmour, so that we can make sure we are expanding our resources to meet the need. We depend on the grassroots efforts of our over 850 trained volunteers and the many, many generous individual donations from friends to help us ensure that we can continue to delivery these retreats at no cost to the participants.
