“Fishing for Miracles will celebrate its 20th anniversary as a local nonprofit, volunteer-based fishing tournament that benefits the MUSC Children’s Hospital Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and the Coastal Conservation Association of South Carolina. Fishing for Miracles has donated more than $600,000 to those causes. This year’s tournament is Aug. 15-17.
On Dec. 17, 2012, Fishing for Miracles presented the 2012 contribution to MUSC Children’s Hospital and CCA in the amount of $27,000. Funds will be used by CCA to promote the future conservation of marine resources and by MUSC Children’s Hospital PICU toward the purchase of a Telemedicine cart. The Telemedicine cart uses state-of-the-art cameras and stethoscopes that allow pediatric specialists to remotely examine patients in emergency situations.
