The April after-meeting presentation will be done by Jim Riley and members of Team River Runner (TRR) - Southeast Pennsylvania. Jim is a former PCC commodore, board member and Marine and will discuss how TRR adapts paddling equipment and instruction to various disabilities and challenges.

The presentation will include a short video on five blind veterans and guides who trained for over a year to solo kayak the Grand Canyon. Various adaptive kayak and equipment will also be on display.

Team River Runner (TRR) is a non-profit network of nearly 60 chapters nationwide. We provide health and healing opportunities to military injured, active duty, veterans, and disabled members of our community through therapeutic kayaking. TRR adapts instruction and equipment to individual injuries and challenges with a goal of forming a supportive community that enjoys camaraderie, teamwork and building paddle-sport skills.
