Last year at the Kurt Caselli Ride Day, the Foundation awarded Brendan Crow the Spring 2018 Scholarship which will support him in his journey to earning a Bachelor's in Cyber Security at CSU San Bernardino. Brendan is an expert/Pro rider, AMA District 37 Officer, and his 2018 plans include racing the AMA ISDE West Qualifier Series, D37 Enduro Series, select D37 Desert and Grand Prix Series events as well as some REM events. Earlier in 2017, the KCF awarded Colorado State University student Luke Bender the Fall 2017 Scholarship to assist him in his major of Construction Management. Luke is very involved with various CSU programs including the mountain bike team, the United States Green Building Council Club and CM Cares. With CM Cares, Luke donates his time alongside other construction management majors to help people in the community with construction projects that they have such as handicap access to their homes. You can find Luke racing AA Pro in the Rocky Mountain Enduro series, Colorado Off-Road Championship series and select EnduroCross Series events.
