We invite ALL paddlers – whether you are never-ever, to just for fun or a seasoned veteran -- to come together for a day on the water and support Team River Runner! The emphasis is on FUN versus speed. Pints and Paddles is a paddle community event, and we encourage everyone to attend!

Even if you don’t own a kayak and SUP board, we have you covered – rentals will be provided through Aqua Adventures Kayaks & Paddleboards if booked in advance.

Our Chapter

Family fun kayaking at Aqua Adventures and Team River Runner

The San Diego Chapter of Team River Runner (TRR), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, provides active duty service members, veterans and their families an opportunity to find health and healing through kayaking and other paddle sports. We hold several monthly paddles at Aqua Adventures Kayaks & Paddleboards for local Veterans including one for active duty patients at Balboa Medical Center, one for patients at the ASPIRE Center, and one for Veterans and their families served by the La Jolla VA.  

Our Mission

Purple Heart recipient kayaking Aqua Adventures

Founded in 2004 at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, we now offer weekly paddling sessions in more than 60  locations across the nation. Team River Runner (TRR) is more than an adaptive sports program; it is an opportunity for veterans, their family members, and everyone in the community to participate  It’s an opportunity to enjoy nature and realize its social, physical, and emotional benefits, whether it’s tackling whitewater rapids or paddling on peaceful flat-water. It’s an environment that facilitates connection, allowing veterans to reunite with their families and forge relationships with those who have endured similar pain. TRR creates purpose and community service. Our veterans are on the river to recovery.

Putting Butts in Boats Since 2004

Paddling can be very therapeutic to help heal physical injuries as well as for Post Traumatic Stress and Traumatic Brain Injury, but Veterans get the most satisfaction from helping their fellow Veterans.  Some of the funds raised will be used for Leadership Training Courses to provide the opportunity for Veterans to become the future leaders of TRR.
