Grand Canyon Adventure trip
In September 2018, Team River Runner guided 5 well trained blind veterans in their own kayaks on an epic whitewater run down the mighty Colorado River in the Grand Canyon! TRR had previously guided Lonnie Bedwell down these same rapids in 2013 making him the first blind kayaker to successfully paddle all 226 miles. Lonnie coordinated the 2018 adventure, forming a team of 12 sighted veterans and 4 TRR volunteers as the guides. Lonnie had dreamed since his 2013 historic feat to be able to share this life changing experience with his fellow veterans. Take the time to review the journey, along with some videos of one of TRR’s proudest accomplishments.
