Fisherman donates funds to CRMC

MOULTRIE — A Moultrie native and professional bass fisherman donated proceeds from an October breast cancer research fundraiser to Colquitt Regional Medical Center Monday.

J. Todd Tucker, a professional bass fisherman on the Elite tour, presented a $2,602 check to CRMC to go toward a breast cancer awareness fund. He said the money was raised by selling special edition Big Green Egg jerseys during the month of October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Breast cancer awareness is a very important cause to Tucker, as he said he lost a cousin, Kiley, 32, to breast cancer in 2009 after fighting the disease for three years. The jerseys being sold are pink with a pink ribbon and a pink dragonfly, a symbol of Kiley.

The jerseys are available on Tucker’s Web site for $60 each, and he said all proceeds will go toward breast cancer research. All jerseys sold from now until the end of October will go toward his donation total for 2011.

For more information or to purchase a jersey, visit Tucker’s Web site at www.jtoddtucker.com. Donations for breast cancer research can also be made by visiting his father’s Web site at www.butchtuckerfishin.com.
