About The JMB Fishing Foundation
To take what we have been given and give it back, to make a difference in the lives of others. We were born to make a difference, to contribute and share our gifts with the world.
In 2019, JMB has worked with, and impacted over 200 children and their families. We work to provide meaningful memories by pairing children with terminal illnesses and children with special needs, with veterans, wounded warriors, fishermen, hunters and outdoorsmen in great adventures. Our goal is to provide new opportunities and smiles that will last a lifetime.
How We Got Started
In June of 2018, Jimmy Bennett was hosting a family fishing trip with a 6-year-old girl that had recently been diagnosed with D.I.P.G. (diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma). On the trip, she looked up at him and said, “This is the best day ever! Can you help me to not die?”. It was in that instant that he knew the direction he had to go. It was then that JMB Fishing Foundation’s journey began.
Where We Are Now
JMB Fishing Foundation has a strong busy line up for the summer! We will be working with Waco Elite Therapy as well as many fishing trips for Heartis Living Center, special needs children, C.A.S.T. for Kids and several hunts and cook offs.
