December 2017 BORP Newsletter
Dear BORP Supporter,
It has been another amazing year at BORP and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support and commitment to BORP’s mission. Your contributions and participation are what makes BORP the incredible community that it is and what challenges and motivates us to continue improving year after year.
At BORP we know the impact of sports and recreation on our participants.
These numbers tell an important story about BORP's impact. But behind these numbers are the very real faces, not just of our participants, but also their families. BORP parent, Angel Thornton says it best in a recent letter about her son's increased self-confidence and independence thanks to his participation in our youth sports program and what that has meant to her as a mother:
I hope you will take a minute to read Angel's touching letter. And, from all of us here at BORP, we wish you a very peaceful and joyful holiday season and a happy New Year.
After her son Ben was paralyzed as a toddler, a day didn’t go by without Angel wondering about his future if she couldn’t always be there. Then they found BORP.
While this event is very much a competition, it also embodies the sports experience at its best for the athletes, spectators, and volunteers! It wouldn’t be possible without all of you!
Beginning January 16, 2018, reservations will be required to visit Muir Woods for all vehicles, including those needing accessible parking, and shuttle riders.

The BORP youth basketball teams have had a great couple of months as they have prepared for the beginning of the season.
