The Ray McLain Paddling Scholarship Fund
has been set up under Wausau Kayak /
Canoe Corporation’s 501(c)3 to provide financial help to qualified up and
coming paddlers in the whitewater kayaking sport in Wisconsin and the Midwest.
This will enable qualified canoe/ kayak athletes to train and compete in the
sport in pursuit of national and /or international medalling.
As Ray McLain has committed so much of his time, efforts, and dollars over the years to help youth excel in the sport, Wausau Kayak / Canoe Corporation and Green Bay Paddlers United want this to keep his legacy going. A committee to administer the fund is comprised of representatives from Green Bay Paddlers United and Wausau Kayak / Canoe Corporation.
Rebecca Giddens, formerly of
Green Bay, WI, Whitewater Slalom World Champion and Olympic Silver Medalist says, “It’s the Ray McLain’s of this
world that make the difference. He teaches with fun, love, dedication, and
determination. Thanks for helping me get to the top, Ray!”
