We invite you and your company to get involved with the Fifth Annual Pints & Paddles for a Cause – a community event supporting Team River Runner! This event unites ALL paddlers – from never-ever, to just for fun and seasoned – for a day on the water to help those that served us in combat! The emphasis is on FUN versus speed.
Help Team River Runner raise funds and bring awareness and opportunity to our service members who have bravely sacrificed themselves for our country.
Why support Team River Runner?
TRR’s mission is to create an environment of healthy adventure by providing innovative paddling programs to assist with recovery and healing of active duty and veteran service members through paddle sports.
Paddle sports are a fun therapeutic activity that contributes to the healing process of many injured service members and veterans who must overcome life-altering injuries such as Post-Traumatic Stress, traumatic brain injuries, amputations, spinal cord injuries, sight impairment and other disabling wounds.
Wounded service members endure many months of surgeries, physical and readjustment therapy, prosthetic fittings, and other life changes. Against this backdrop, those who are able will welcome a chance to pick up a new challenge and get out of the daily routine of their treatments. Our service members are attracted to paddling (kayaking and stand up paddle boarding) because it offers an exciting way to improve their health, strength, camaraderie and a connection with nature.
Focusing on a soldier’s strength turns disability into ability, turns dysfunction into freedom, dependence into independence and restores the quality of life.
