BORP: Adaptive Sports and Recreation LOGODonate Now

April 2017 BORP Newsletter

Dear BORP Supporter,

We have exciting news: On June 9th we are celebrating the 30th Anniversary of our Youth Sports Program. It's hard to believe that this life-changing program has already been in action for three decades, touching thousands of lives and sparking a revolution in adaptive sports programming across the country for youth with physical disabilities. We are looking forward to bringing together the BORP community to celebrate and recognize many of the individuals who have made a lasting impact on BORP's youth programming. Candice Cable, Gold Medalist Paralympian, will provide remarks on her amazing sports career, and as a special bonus, program founder, Tim Orr, and current program coordinator, Trooper Johnson, will share the MC duties! Click here to get your ticket to the event!

Another important date: June 17th – BORP will launch an adaptive rowing program with a training session for people interested in helping with the program and an Open House for individuals who want to experience rowing. So save this date.
