    California Adaptive Rowing Program 

We are a nonprofit organization. Our mission is to provide instruction and training for   competitive and recreational opportunities in the sport of rowing to physically and intellectually challenged individuals.  Participation in physical activities is essential to prevent people with disabilities from surrendering themselves to confinement.  Participants gain self-esteem and a sense of accomplishment.
