Team River Runner (TRR), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, gives active duty servicemembers and veterans an opportunity to find health, healing, and new challenges through whitewater boating and other paddling sports.

The benefits of TRR have as much to do with creating a social network and support system as they do with learning water sports skills that provide an exciting adventure lifestyle that suddenly seemed lost due to injury. The program also encourages family members to participate whenever possible.

TRR accomplishes its goals through a step-by-step approach in which paddlers learn to control a kayak in a pool, and then move to open water: rivers, lakes and oceans, where they gain additional experience and skills. Once they have mastered the basics, local chapters take participants on paddling trips to challenge and improve skills. TRR also organizes trips to more progressively challenging venues in Colorado, Montana, Florida, USVI and Mexico. Leadership training is provided so that wounded warriors can take their growing adventure skills home to share with veterans in their community.

TRR has Local Chapters across the country. If there is not a TRR Chapter in your area, please Contact Us at our national office in Washington D.C.

Our tax-id number is 20-3838651 and all donations are fully deductible. Happy Paddling!
