BORP: Adaptive Sports and Recreation LOGODonate Now

August 2017 BORP Newsletter

Dear BORP Supporter,

It's hard to believe that BORP will be hosting its 15th Annual Revolution Ride & Festival next month. We've planned a fun day of cycling and festivities for everyone including live music by award-winning family bluegrass band, The Barefoot Quales! We'll also have a photo booth thanks to Fun Frame Photo, lawn games, massages for riders, and delicious gourmet food and wine. It should be the best REV yet! And there's still time to join us: Click here to register as a rider, sign up to volunteer, or purchase a Festival-Only ticket.

I would also like to invite you to our Opening Day event on September 9. This annual event is a great opportunity to come out and see what BORP is all about. You can watch and play paralympic sports including Wheelchair Basketball, Goalball, Adapted Cycling, and Power Soccer. There's no fee to attend, but your RSVP is appreciated and will help us plan for food and drinks.

I hope to see you at Opening Day on September 9 and at the Revolution on September 23! GO BORP!
