BORP Transforms Lives

Participation in sports, fitness and recreation activities have been proven to have numerous positive effects. For people with disabilities and vision impairments, however, there are multiple barriers that prevent them from engaging in these activities. BORP breaks down those barriers, and, as a result, our participants’ lives are transformed.
