Team River Runner Boston

Team River Runner (TRR), established in August 2004 by kayakers in the Washington, DC area, is a primarily volunteer non-profit organization run by a council of kayakers and overseen by a board of directors. TRR was initially established to help active duty military personnel wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan who were recovering at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. With the success there obvious and the opportunity elsewhere apparent, TRR expanded to other Department of Defense (DoD) and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) chapter sites in 2007. TRR envisions a national network which creates innovative paddling programs designed to assist with the recovery of those injured while serving our country. Through paddle sports, TRR volunteers and partners provide local communities unique opportunities for the active, safe and positive support of healing service members and their families.

VIStars

ViStars is a non-profit organization that provides after-school programs for students who are blind or visually impaired. Our mission is to create safe, accessible and stimulating environments where students can acquire skills related to their unique visual needs. We promote social interaction with other students with visual impairments while exposing the group to recreation and leisure activities, independent living skills, career education and leadership skills. Our goal is for the students to transfer the skills they learn at ViStars to their individual school and community experiences.
