Supporting our troops

Cape Ability Outrigger Ohana is proud to support our Veterans. Men and women from across the nation have been able to participate in CAOO's annual Rochester River Challenge outrigger canoeing sprint races for the last 7 years.  From 2005-2011, the Rochester River Challenge was designated as a Wounded Warrior Disabled Sports Project Event. Visit for more information. 

In addition to paddling and competing in the River Challenge, our Veterans have had the opportunity to visit Niagara Falls during their visit to Western New York.  A weekend of activities is planned for the veterans. 

We thank our many sponsors for helping to make these opportunities for our Veterans possible.
