CATCH YOUR MOMENT Foundation

 

 

 

 

 

Connecting families touched by cancer with fishing

A Tribute to Daniel Duty & Jacob Landsteiner

 

About Us

Catch Your Moment Foundation is a group of dedicated anglers and professionals connecting families touched by cancer with the therapeutic sport of fishing. The objective of the foundation is to provide peer support with an opportunity to find inspiration, healing connections, and enjoy the outdoors with an experienced angler. Catch Your Moment is a non-profit foundation. All fishing trips and costs incurred are 100% donated and volunteered. 

Started by cancer survivor Timmon Lund, who experienced the benefit that fishing provided during treatment. "Friends and family would pick me up and bring me to the lake. Just getting out took me away from what I was faced with and provided a relief that medicine couldn't. Now, this is my way to give back."

 

 

When life gives you lemonade, you make AWESOMENESS!

TIMMON LUND

Timmon Lund grew up chasing fish of any type but his favorite were muskie and walleye. Diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2012, fishing was his main outlet. During Timmon’s long fight with cancer, his best friend Dan Duty was diagnosed with colorectal cancer didn’t make it. In his honor, Timmon began the Catch Your Moment Foundation in 2016. Pursing and sharing his passion of fishing, Timmon now spends around 300 days per year on the water. His desire is to build Catch Your Moment with the intention that it continues to reach people in a positive way long after he’s gone.
