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.

Londell nissen

Londell grew up 9 miles from Lake Sakakawea in Parshall, ND. His passions include fishing, hunting, and any outdoor activities.  After graduating from high school, he moved to Bismarck, ND where he is minutes from the Missouri River. Even though he is close to the Missouri River, Lake Sakakawea is his favorite place to fish. He has been in the insurance industry going on nine years. He is married to his wife Lori for 22 years. She is a RN with Good Samaritan Home Care Society. She also has a passion for fishing, gardening, and spending time with her family. Londell & Lori have two children. Allison is a sophomore in college studying to be a nurse like her mother. Allison loves fishing, hunting, and helping others. Brenden is a sophomore in high school and loves hunting, fishing, and has his own lawn care business. My wife and I wanted to start a foundation like this and we were doing research when we found “Catch Your Moment.” It was like a God send because “Catch Your Moment” matched exactly what we wanted to do. After many emails and messages with Timmon, we will be starting a chapter in Bismarck, ND. Our mission was inspired by our neighbor’s father, Duane, who had brain cancer and just recently passed away. Duane wanted to fish Lake Sakakawea before he passed so we agreed to take him fishing. Duane, his son-in-law, my daughter, my son, and I went out fishing that day. To say the least it was an amazing day, catching lots of fish and laughing a lot. I have never seen a guy as happy as Duane was that day. This was truly God’s work and why we are here today to fulfill the mission of a great organization like “Catch Your Moment.”
