KeelGuard becomes official sponsor of K.A.S.T. for 2006 and 2007
SPRINGFIELD, MO – K.A.S.T. (Kids Are Special Too) announced Monday that KeelGuard – a world leader in boat protection products – will become an official sponsor of K.A.S.T for the remainder of 2006 thru 2007 season.
Founded in 1995 by professional fisherman Mike Webb, K.A.S.T. is a non-profit organization in which introduces kids to the sport of fishing as an alternative to drugs. In 2005 alone, K.A.S.T. logged more than 40,000 miles across 10 states all the while conducting over 100 seminars at schools and youth organizations. In addition, K.A.S.T. attended 10 NASCAR®, Busch® Series, and NHRA® races touching millions and placing them as one of the most influential youth initiatives of its time.
“Today’s youth are faced with a myriad of choices that will impact their lives for years to come,” said Mike Webb, founder of K.A.S.T. “With KeelGuard joining our exclusive sponsor family, we can not only strengthen our existing efforts but also further our outreach.”
Webb went on to say: “KeelGuard is clearly a dominant force in the industry with a community mindset and I can’t think of a better way for them to bring awareness to their outstanding products than through their involvement with K.A.S.T. They leave no doubt in their commitment to promote excellence.”
KeelGuard President David Shumway said: “We are excited about our new sponsorship of K.A.S.T. A large percentage of youth will never have an introduction to the sport of fishing and the benefits K.A.S.T. demonstrates. This sponsorship provides the opportunity to facilitate that introduction as well as provide a resource for parents. It’s a win-win situation.”
