Hundreds of Mid-South fisherman are gearing up to compete for a good cause this Memorial Day weekend in the St. Jude Bass Classic. The tournament is celebrating its' 40th year.
More than $2.5 million dollars have been raised since the competition’s beginning. Every dollar goes right to the hospital.
Each year the tournament focuses on one special patient, and fishing is a big part of this year’s patients’ family.
Hayden Taylor was recently diagnosed with cancer. Taylor and his father were out on the boat fishing when they received a phone call with the life-changing news.
Taylor’s family will drive from Virginia to be a part of the tournament.
