Fishing for the Cure Alexandria Industries Fishing For the Cure Ice Fishing Challenge

Anyone who has been there will tell you that the Fishing For the Cure Ice Fishing Challenge is one of the funnest and meaningful fishing tournaments ever!

What's better than a fun day ice fishing with family and friends, while also knowing you are raising money for a good cause?

Our 2020 tournament definitely held up its reputation of being a fun, family friendly event. Nearly 1,436 people – moms, dads, kids, grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles, cousins, and many friends – enjoyed catching fish, watching the leaderboard to see where their name would land on the list of 100 prizes, and raising money to help find a cure for cancer.

Prizes were awarded for the top 50 fish in two fish categories.

The Fishing for the Cure event honors those who are fighting cancer, those who have fought cancer and won, and those who have suffered from cancer and are no longer with us.

Unfortunately, we had to cancel our 2021 tournament due to Minnesota government restrictions on group gathering sizes during the pandemic. Our next tournament will be held on Feb. 19, 2022. We look forward to seeing everyone next year!
