Although June is coming to an end, St John has many great activities planned for July. One super fun event, the St. John Chaotic Kayak, will be held on Sunday, July 27th at Oppenheimer beach. This fun filled day will be packed with music, beer, food, kayak races, a stand-up paddle board race (BYO board and $25 entry fee), and raffle prices. You are invited to join the fun to support your favorite businesses in St. John.
This charity event supports the Team River Runner (TRR) 2014 Wounded Veterans USVI program. The TRR was setup in 2004 as a non-profit organization to help active duty military wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan by providing paddling programs to assist in recovery from injury. Each year TRR hosts a trip to St. John in November to focus on kayaking and paddling techniques and to provide leadership training to qualified candidates. More information on this organization can be found at Team River Runner.
