Team River Runner 's Lehigh Valley Chapter just formed in 2016, but the group is off to a fast start. For those not familiar with TRR, their goal is to create an environment of healthy adventure, recreation and camaraderie for healing active duty, veteran service members and their families through adaptive kayaking. They have already made a big splash in eastern Pennsylvania.
With several events already held in the summer of 2016, the group has boasted attendance of over 20 adaptive paddlers seeking to enjoy the water. It has been said that good things take time and the development of TRR in the Lehigh Valley wasn't possible without the efforts of the Leaser Lake Heritage Foundation and local Lions Clubs who had the foresight to make Leaser Lake accessible several years ago. Frankly, if it wasn't for the diligence and efforts of these organizations as well as several committed individuals there would be no accessible kayak launch. With no ADA boat launch there is no access to the lake for those with disabilities. This means that TRR's presence in the Lehigh Valley would be non-existant.
Here at BoardSafe we are proud to manufacture products that truly enhance and bring joy and well-being into the lives of others. To learn more about TRR's event at Leaser Lake click here.
