ABOUT THE FOUNDER

katie lewis

Marathon Keys Premier Sailfish Tournament is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization registered by Katie Lewis in 2021. After donating free trips to great charitable organizations such as Mission Fishin’, Katie saw firsthand the positive impact that organizations like this have on children’s lives. Co-owning a Marathon-based fishing charter business, Katie also recognized a lack of Sailfish tournaments being hosted out of Marathon, Florida.

Katie decided that by hosting a Sailfish Tournament, she would contribute the proceeds to great charities while giving the wonderful and talented fishermen of the Keys a platform to showcase their abilities and compete. Thus, the Marathon Premier Sailfish Tournament was born.
