Due to the large number of requests, we ask that organizations meet our donation requirements and compete the request form. RKC typically donates a certificate. for four people to rent solo kayaks or solo bicycles for one hour at Belle Isle Park for Monday – Friday rentals.
We seek to support those causes which effect positive change. Organizations committed to promoting environmental sustainability, youth organizations, and health causes are given preference.
The Jerry Glotfelty Kayak Education Fund has been set up. The fund will promote youth kayak education.
If you have ever been to an RKC demo day, the Port Austin Kayak Symposium or were towed on one of our tours you probably met Jerrry Glotfelty. It is with a very heavy heart that in January 2017 we had to say good bye to an amazing kayak instructor and even more amazing friend.
You can go to any Fifth Third Bank and tell them you would like to make a donation to the Jerry Glotfelty Kayak Education Fund. You can also write a check to Downriver Linked Greenways Initiative (a 501(c)3) and write Jerry Glotfelty Kayak Education Fund in the memo. Mail checks in care of Riverside Kayak Connection, 4016 Bilddle Avenue, Wyandotte, MI 48192.
Riverside Kayak Connection is helping kids and adults stay safe on the water. With the Life Jacket Loaner Program you can borrow a life jacket for the day or weekend, at no charge!
