In 2016, the second winner of the JDU Memorial Scholarship was Lorenzo Vellutino, a 14-year-old boy from Cusco. In order to increase the chances of winning the scholarship, Lorenzo prepared himself with much more time in advance and was fully committed to train with the support of his family, also river paddling experts. During the trip, Lorenzo surprised us by winning the "Best Keener Out of Water" award, a recognition given to the child with the best initiative, disposition, good attitude, friendliness and companionship. Once again, the program proved that we contribute to the personal development of a child through sport by providing them with tools to lead a healthy and happy lifestyle.
