Fishing Derby to Benefit Children with Pediatric Cancer

On the cool, breezy, and yet still very sunny day of Sunday May the 22nd members of The Guardians of Justice stepped out for a great event hosted by Ana Banana and Captain Joel Brandenburg. For 17 years the Ana Banana Kids Fishing Derby has been put on to benefit children with pediatric cancer and their families.

The may even actually catch some fish! This event is so special because a day full of fun and sun is just perfect for allowing these families to take their minds off of their struggles and letting them relax and enjoy the Florida beach atmosphere for a bit.
