Get more kids on the water! This is the mission of Rutabaga's Josh Kestelman Scholarship Fund.
Who was Josh Kestelman?
Josh Kestelman was a dedicated instructor for Rutabaga Outdoor Adventures. His passion was to get youth on the water. This scholarship fund honors and supports the work he did to share his love of the water with others before his life was cut short by cancer in his early 20s.
How are these funds used?
Each year Rutabaga partners with community groups throughout the Madison area to get local kids and teens out on the water. The money from the Kestelman Scholarship goes directly to community youth programs and individual families, who would otherwise not have access to paddling programs, paying up to half their costs..
How can I help?
This fund exists because members of the paddling community, near and far, have donated the resources to help Rutabaga to keep serving kids. Every donation, large or small, is a chance for more kids to get out on the water. You can support the Kestelman Scholarship Fund
by donating $1 (or more!) when you check out with your purchases on our website.
