River Runners teach vets to kayak

A special group of kayakers hit the water today in Chester County. The Coatesville chapter of "Team River Runner" put on a demonstration at the VA Medical Center.

It's a group that helps wounded veterans learn to kayak, to add a fun and recreational aspect to their rehabilitation.

River Runners was started at Walter Reed Medical Center back in 2004.

Volunteers hope it will soon become a full time program in Coatesville.
