Team River Runner San Diego (TRRSD) is one of about 65 chapters of TRR National that provides opportunities for Veterans and Active Duty soldiers to find health, healing, community purpose, and new challenges through paddle sports. Some of their activities include monthly flat-water paddles on Mission Bay both for patients at Balboa Medical Center as part of their recovery program and for local Veterans dealing with any of the injuries that occurred while they were in a theater of war or afterward. They can bring family and friends, and participants seeking the therapeutic benefits of paddling do not have to be a Veteran.nnIn San Diego they have adaptive equipment from a company called Creating Ability available that allows people with limited use of or missing hands, arms or legs, are wheelchair bound, and/or have spinal cord injury to paddle their own kayak
