This year’s contest benefits the Coastal Conservation Association’s habitat restoration efforts in Florida.
“This is really a competition to see who can raise the most money for CCA,” says Daughtry. “Each team is soliciting sponsors and donations so we’re hoping to raise $10 per mile—that would mean that each team is raising $12,000 to go directly toward CCA’s habitat restoration programs. Florida’s waters and our gamefish are the real winners here.”
The donations were presented to CCA this past April during the conservation organization’s annual fundraiser in Orlando, Florida.
