Customer in the Community: Becca Carter
Diamond Brand is proud to have Becca Carter as a regular customer. She’s always looking for a good deal on paddling and hiking items, and we know she’s putting them to good use. Her resume includes two years in The Gambia, West Africa, serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer and ten years of teaching school. The Waynesville resident and regular whitewater paddler also helps others in the water. After a bad concussion and her own experience with kayaking as therapeutic recreation, Becca felt it was very important to offer it to veterans. With the help of Steve Heiselman, the Asheville Chapter of Team River Runner (TRR) was founded in April 2010. Becca currently serves as the Program Coordinator. TRR was established in 2004 by kayakers in the Washington, D.C., area to help active duty military personnel wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan who were recovering at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. The Asheville chapter is one of two in North Carolina; the other is based in Raleigh.
Assisting Becca in this effort are Warren Wilson College paddling coach

Will Leverette and his students with introductory rolling sessions in the college pool. In the span of a few months, wounded veterans have taken to this new sport and progressed from pool to a maiden voyage down the Tuckasegee River. These same veterans are becoming active members of the Western Carolina Paddlers Club. Soon, a new group of veterans will start pool sessions. We salute Becca for her efforts!
