We are inspired to honor the legacy for the life of Keaton Guthrie-Goss who died in 2018 on a surfing adventure in California. Keaton lived life to the fullest, and encouraged others to do the same. We would love for you to join us in honoring Keaton by supporting organizations and projects that provide underserved kids with transformational outdoor adventures and experiences in nature.
We are looking forward to lots of programming for summer 2023, including the second annual Great Skate Giveaway with Keep It Moving Zane where we plan to bring 100 skateboards to 100 kids! Stay tuned for more information...
SPRING 2023 TREK ACADEMY GRADUATION
This Spring, we had the privilege to watch some of the kids we've supported through CatRock Ventures' cycling academy. These CatRock members have completed the Trek program to learn how to be bike technicians! Keaton's Kids was instrumental in getting CatRock's Biking Academy up and running. We're proud of these young people who have gone through the program and will know everything there is to know about bikes, and a way to earn extra money no matter what life throws their way.
WINTER 2023 SNOWBOARDING TRIP WITH SHRED!
In March 2023, we partnered with Shred Foundation to take almost 50 kids on 4 snowboarding outings to Wyndham Mountain! The kids were all recruited from The Boys and Girls Club in Newburgh, NY. The Shred Foundation, an organization we love, organized the trip, Wyndham Mountain contributed lift tickets and amazing instructors, and Keaton's Kids brought the kids to the mountain by paying for the huge buses they needed to bring all the kids up. What we loved most was hearing what how the kids felt about the trip and what snowboarding meant to them: "freedom."
