Kayak For Kids is a project of the Baja Blues Fest Organization. In 2014 and 2015, Herman Stiphout is teaming up with the Baja Blues Fest Organization to raise US $75,000 for the children of Baja California by paddling the Northwest Passage, above the Arctic Circle, during the Arctic summers. He plans to paddle between the Pacific Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean, from Inuvik, Northern Territories to Churchill, Hudson Bay, Nunavut, Canada, a distance of roughly 4,000 miles.
