Aaron Baskerville-Bridges is a 15-year-old cancer survivor. Aaron was invited to attend the 2007 Fishing for Kids tournament held at the Clubhouse Lodge in the Queen Charlotte Islands and speak at the BC Children’s Hospital fundraising event. Over the course of the weekend, Aaron and his father enjoyed a helicopter trip where they saw sea lions and humpback whales; he also found himself less than 20 feet from an eagle while helping out at the start of the race. Aaron’s father caught an 11-pound spring salmon and Aaron was pleased to report that he caught the biggest fish he’d ever caught: a 23-pound Chinook. They enjoyed their multi-course meals and were pleased to meet all those individuals who helped make the event possible.
“The hospital had been good to me, and so I was eager to give back.” – Aaron Baskerville-Bridges
