Sports 4 the Blind
We, the Sports 4 The Blind, are an organization dedicated to the promotion of independence and self-confidence in the visually impaired by enabling them with the requisite skills so that they may be able to reach their full potential. These abilities include, but are not all limited to, the capacity for a visually impaired player to better use and depend upon his/her auditory senses in the department of observation, the conception and subsequent building upon that foundation of decisive action once a decision has been made, and the relegation of such emotions as insecurity, fear, and anxiety by allowing the player to move about an open and even area unaided by anyone or anything save for the player’s own developed senses. The Sports 4 The Blind is also highly supportive of the notion that blindness should not equate to immobility and the health risks due to that lack of activity. This S4TB manifests itself in the stretches and calisthenics performed before each practice, the hour and a half of strenuous game play, and the two or so water breaks in between to make sure that all team members are, and stay hydrated.
Team River Runner Spokane
Team River Runner (TRR), established in August 2004 by kayakers in the Washington, DC area, is a primarily volunteer non-profit organization run by a council of kayakers and overseen by a board of directors.

With the success there obvious and the opportunity elsewhere apparent, TRR expanded to other Department of Defense (DoD) and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) chapter sites in 2007. TRR envisions a national network which creates innovative paddling programs designed to assist with the recovery of those injured while serving our country. Through paddle sports, TRR volunteers and partners provide local communities unique opportunities for the active, safe and positive support of healing service members and their families.
