Dave Mercer’s Casting for a Cure is a non-profit initiative, fully endorsed by the Canadian Cancer Society. Casting for a Cure was founded in 2005 in honour of Dave’s mother, Ann Mercer. It is the organization’s commitment to raise funds through the angling community to help in the fight to end cancer. To date Dave Mercer’s Casting for a Cure has raised over $100,000. Dave’s unique way of promoting this charity, such as his first pitch at a Toronto Blue Jays game, brings something new to the table.
