On Me

On Me – Team River Runner Documentary

Filmed by: Roi Films

“On Me” is film about five veterans kayaking on the Yellowstone River. They are not your average kayakers though.  All five of them are completely blind.  The organization Team River Runner, whose purpose is to get “Butts In Boats”, took these veterans to the Yellowstone River in Montana to participate in the TRR “Outta Sight Clinic”.  The guys get to learn and improve necessary kayaking skills to include paddling, wet exits, rescues, rolls and how to track a guide.  The trip taught them a little more than the skills of whitewater kayaking  though.  They learn how the river relates to life and how it can provide a sense of independence.  This full length documentary shares their stories, philosophies and journey as they experience the river.

You don’t have to be a kayaker to enjoy On Me.  Exhilarating scenery and the vets’  stories can keep you engaged to the very end.
