Reeno Foundation

The Reeno Foundation was created to honor the memory of Nicholas Ruschmeyer.

Nick was a warrior who always put others first. His wishes were for a foundation to be started to offer opportunities for young people to experience hiking, climbing, backcountry skiing, paddling, and all the outdoors has to offer.

Guided by the values and practices that Nick lived by, Reeno strives to expose, and therefore connect, people to the natural world through new and often challenging outdoor activities.

Through these experiences, Reeno recipients will expand their understanding and connection to, not only nature, but to themselves and the people around them. 

Reeno understands that being outdoors and pushing oneself to try new things can be truly transformative, and can set one on a previously unseen path; by providing scholarship funds, we strive to remove barriers for this transformation.
