SHEPHERDSTOWN, WV — Shepherd University’s Team River Runner (TRR) chapter will begin a new kayaking class for local veterans and their families on Wednesday nights from 6-8 p.m. beginning June 7.

Six sessions will be offered over five weeks, beginning at the Shepherd University Wellness Center pool and moving to increasingly challenging sections of local rivers. The third Sunday in June is a special session for TRR chapters at Calleva Outdoor Adventures in Poolesville, Maryland.

There is never a charge for these classes. All instruction, gear, and boats are provided.
