Dear participants and volunteers,
After watching the forecast all week, we are disappointed to decide to cancel Sportsfest. The forecast remains chilly, windy weather and an increasing chance of rain.
Thank you especially to all the volunteers who had set this day aside to help make the day a success. We can’t thank you enough!
Our plan is to reschedule in 2022! Stay tuned and sign up for the BORP newsletter to get updates on all our programs and events.
BORP Adaptive SportsFest is an event for people with disabilities to try out kayaking, rock climbing, and more!
