FREE Kids Fishing Derby

June 13, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

A few months ago, Sequoyah 2nd-grader Luther Clay Rhodes was diagnosed with a malignant Wilms tumor. As of last week, doctors believe he was misdiagnosed and actually has an adrenal tumor. He will travel to Oklahoma City for a biopsy and further treatment.

Because Luther loves to hunt and fish (and it’s not hunting season), his family is hosting a FREE kids fishing derby on Saturday, June 13, at Claremore Lake. There is no cost to enter, and ages 3 – 14 are welcome to attend. The fishing will take place from 8a – 11a. Drawings for prizes will begin at 11:30a, and you must be present to win. You’ll want to stick around anyway, because hamburger and hot dog lunches will be available for just $5 to help with Luther’s mounting medical bills.

If you would like to donate, the family is in need of donations for food items, as well as ice chests, ice and bottled water.

To keep up with this sweet boy’s journey, follow Lovin’ Luther on facebook.
