Hi! My name is Nicholas Troutman, I am a world champion kayaker. After reaching my goal of winning my first world freestyle kayak championship in 2009 I needed something more, a new focus. For 2012 I have set a new goal – to give back! I’m SUPER fired up to be partnering with Adventurous Joe Coffee on this exiting new venture…I love their coffee!!
I’ve signed up for over 20 kayaking competitions this 2012 season and will be donating all of my winnings (prize money) to three very important non profits. Adventurous Joe Coffee will be matching dollar for dollar my winnings and all of it will be going to these great causes:
– Soft Power Health is a non-profit based in Uganda, Africa. It has a focus on bringing health and knowledge to the locals on the river banks of the mighty White Nile River.
– American Whitewater is a non-profit focused on saving rivers around the United States. They have removed more dams, have created more river access, and brought more scheduled flows than any other organization in America
– First Descents in a non-profit taking youth with cancer and introducing them to kayaking and the wilderness.
Come on out to an event this year and follow my journey at Troutman Foundation. Lets all be part of something bigger than any one of us! THANK YOU!!
