Eric Ellman of the Big River Foundation send me this press release for a very special event this coming weekend helping support those with special needs with free kayak clinics. Here is the complete and full release:

Ben Kvanli, the 2008 U.S. National Champion kayaker and Chief Trainer of the Brooke Army Medical Center’s “Wounded Warriors” brings kayaking to the special needs communities of Laredo and Nuevo Laredo October 13 and 14.

Kvanli, born to missionary parents in Guatemala, leads expert kayakers including injured veterans to the rivers of San Luis Potosi, Veracruz and Chiapas. Adding to a cavalcade of river-based events that culminate in the October 20 Dia del Rio/Riofest races, he’s offering free instruction in kayaking for the disabled this coming weekend. People with disabilities, as well as Occupational Therapists or anyone with an interest in working with this very special population is invited to participate, free of charge.

Free clinics are scheduled for Nuevo Laredo and Laredo on the 13th and 14th of October, respectively.
