Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 25, 2016
Kayaks 4 Kidz™, one of LA’s most unique summer youth water sports programs, opens its 15th season of fun, learning and adventure through Introduction to Kayaking classes from June 12 through September 28th at Mother’s Beach in Marina del Rey, CA. The Kayaks 4 Kidz™ mission is to promote healthier minds and bodies through its boating classes while developing the cumulative benefits from sports participation such as self-esteem, increased physical strength, and confidence on the water, appreciation and respect for the environment.
KFK is very excited to announce a new fundraising campaign with Bootsy, an LA-Based company who is introducing its line of closet storage accessories and donating a portion of the proceeds to Kayaks 4 Kidz. Says C. Walden, CMO for Bootsy, ”I have been involved with the Kayaks 4 Kidz program since it began and have seen first-hand the impact the program has had on my life as well as my kids and their friends, participants and their families. I’m so proud to be able to give back to the organization for all that they do in the community. We will launch the KFK fundraiser to celebrate Mother’s Day in May, and introduce Bootsy as a unique, useful and one-of-a kind, hand-made item – a perfect gift for any woman - mom or not.” Bootsy will be available through the Kayaks 4 Kidz website with 50% of all proceeds going directly to the Kayaks 4 Kidz program.
“Kayaking is a high energy, interactive experience that provides a strength and confidence-building experience for youngsters from 8-18, with little or no swimming or boating experience. The half-day summer program provides instruction in the basic fundamentals of sit-on-top kayaking, including: boat handling, equipment care, water safety and navigation rules, paddling techniques; capsize recovery and the proper use of safety gear. We do not charge a fee for boat and gear rental, but do ask parents to help with a tax-deductible donation to cover liability insurance and permits. The program has hosted over 6,000 participants since it began”, says its Co-Director, Gay Brewer-Smith.
Bootsy is an LA-based brand developed and marketed by No Limits PR+ for the home goods industry as a closet storage solution for footwear – designed specifically for women and men’s boots. The LA-Nevada-based, privately-owned company is developing a line of simple, affordable and creative jewelry and fashion accessory storage/displays designed to simplify and maximize closet storage and organization.
