St. John Supports Wounded Warriors

St. John will once again show its support for Wounded Warriors and their families at the 3rd annual St. John Chaotic Kayak event.

The event pits a maximum of 32 teams – each comprised of three “warriors” – against one another in a crazy kayak race at Oppenheimer Beach. The event will take place on July 28 at 12 p.m.

St. John Chaotic Kayak is being held in partnership with Team River Runner (TRR). TRR gives active duty service members and veterans an opportunity to find health, healing and new challenges through whitewater boating and other paddling sports. One hundred percent of the event’s proceeds will be used to bring wounded veterans and their spouses to St. John each November for one week of healing.

Local businesses sponsor teams and people are encouraged to donate to their favorites. Participating businesses include: The Westin, VI Ecotours; Spyglass; Skinny Legs; Woody’s; Ocean Grille; Sadie Sea/Love City Charters; St. John App; Castaways; Across the Street Bar and Grill; High Tide; Asolare; Beach Bar; Arawak Kayaking; Crabby’s Watersports; Sun Dog Cafe; Motu; Island Blues; Magical Ninja Carpentry; Glazers Premier Distributors; Shipwreck Landing; Grande Bay; and Soggy Dollar Bar.

A new addition to this year’s event is a stand-up paddleboard race. The entry fee is $25 and anyone can enter. The only rule is that you must bring your own board. The event will also feature live music, beer tents, food and raffle prizes.
