Paddling unifies and heals us. Adaptive Paddling classifications include amputation and other limb impairments, cerebral palsy, visual impairment, spinal cord injuries, and more. Organizations like Dynamic Paddlers sprang out of the desire of a man with a below elbow amputation to be active on the water. Paddling programs like Team River Runner and River House focus on giving back to veterans. After years of the damaging affects of service, these veterans experience the healing peace of our beautiful state’s waters. Out in nature, exerting themselves on the water, we, the diverse community, become one and become better selves.
