About Bentley Bedker

Bentley Bedker of Breckenridge was an avid outdoorsman and athlete, excelling in kayaking, Nordic and alpine skiing, and cycling. His greatest love and passion, however, was rock climbing. Bentley traveled around the world to climb, and touched the hearts of many along the way. Tragically, Bentley died unexpectedly in July of 2009. The Bedker family is graciously offering this scholarship to Summit County youth climbers in loving memory of Bentley.
