Registration now open for 2022 Kevin Woyjeck Memorial Fishing Derby

Registration is now open for the 2022 Kevin Woyjeck Fishing Derby. Set for Friday, Sept. 2 check-in will start at 5:30AM at the Boathouse restaurant located at 190 Marina Drive, Long Beach. The Fishing Derby is a fundraiser for the Kevin Woyjeck Explorers for Life Association (KWEFLA). The Kevin Woyjeck Explorers for Life Association is a non-profit organization started by Kevin Woyjeck’s parents, Joe and Anna Woyjeck. It was founded as a way to honor and carry-on Kevin’s legacy after his line of duty passing, battling the Yarnell, AZ wildfire on June 30th, 2013, alongside 19 crewmates. KWEFLA helps young men and women successfully participate in fire career related explorer programs, just like Kevin did himself. Kevin truly enjoyed the explorer program and what it had to offer him in reaching his dreams.

Fire Explorer programs give young adolescents aging 15-21 years of age access to tools that help them follow their career goals, while shadowing real firefighters volunteering their time to teach and pass on knowledge. It fosters a priceless on-hand learning environment.
