Urban Kids Fish (UKF) is the only traveling U.S. amateur fishing derby event serving inner-city youth of all racial and cultural backgrounds.  UKF is a division of S.O.D.A.S. Life Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2004 by Candice Price and Wayne Hubbard for the purposes of helping inner-city youth experience nature through fishing. To ensure that their efforts were a success, that same year, Candice and Wayne began hosting their annual Urban Kids Fishing Derby in the Greater Kansas City area.

In 2014, after 10 years of overwhelming success in the Kansas City market, the event had begun to attract national interest. That interest has since led to annual Urban Kids Fishing Derby events being held in Atlanta (GA), Los Angeles (CA), Washington DC, Ferguson (MO) and in 2019 Milwaukee (WI).
