The Milwaukee Chapter of Team River Runner made use of Wausau's Whitewater course to give veterans an opportunity to forget the past and just paddle.
Its a national program that has over 20 chapters around the country. Each using water as a form of therapy and as a challenge. It helps veterans overlook their disabilities to rekindle that competitive edge that makes a soldier a soldier.
Craig Esposito, co-coordinator of the Milwaukee chapter can fit any veteran or wounded warrior in an adaptive kayak. Keeping them afloat and their thoughts off the past.
