BADWATER by AdventureCORPS has been a sponsor of the Bald Head Island Conservancy since 2014. Their goal is to raise $10,000 each year to support our sea turtle protection efforts, and since becoming a sponsor, AdventureCORPS/BADWATER have contributed more than $125,000 in donations to the Conservancy. Every BADWATER racing event encourages participants to support BHIC.

AdventureCORPS was created in 1985 by Chris Kostman, the organization’s current Chief Adventure Officer. 

“I’m an environmentalist, ocean lover, and clean water advocate,” Kostman says, “and our organization is a proud member of One Percent For The Planet and the Conservation Alliance. Everything that the Conservancy does—from conservation to preservation to education—is vitally important. I also love how approachable everyone is with the Conservancy, and how well they communicate about science and nature in ways that are fun and easy to follow… The Conservancy is an incredible force doing really great work – and so we love to be associated with and support that!”

Kostman has produced more than 150 endurance events around the globe through AdventureCORPS, ranging in location from Death Valley to Nepal to right here on Bald Head Island. BADWATER is an AdventureCORPS brand involved in entertainment, fundraising, clothing, energy drinks, outdoor gear, and much more.

“I love taking people to places they wouldn’t normally go to,” Kostman says, “and Bald Head Island is a beautiful, unusual, special place. The wide variety of ecosystems on the island are just fascinating. It’s a microcosm of the world, and so I designed the race route to showcase everything the island has to offer – from the maritime forests to the sand dunes, marshes, beaches, golf courses, the marina, and more. Also, the locals and Village employees have really embraced us and our event and we truly appreciate their support.”

The 2024 BADWATER Cape Fear race is March 23!
