2019 BORP Annual Report


The 2019 annual report for Bay Area Outreach & Recreation Program.


2019 was an exciting and busy

year for BORP. We expanded

several of our programs, added

initiatives to serve specific

populations, and continued to

provide a wide range of high

quality adaptive sport, recreation

and fitness activities to children,

youth, and adults throughout the

San Francisco Bay Area.


Individuals Served in 2019


To improve the health,

independence, and social

integration of people

with physical disabilities

through sports, fitness,

and recreation.

In partnership with Lyft and the cities of Oakland

and San Francisco, BORP launched an adaptive

bikeshare pilot program at two sites: Lake

Merritt in Oakland and Golden Gate Park in

San Francisco. The program made adaptive

urban cycling available to a diverse group of

With support from the Craig H. Neilsen

Foundation, BORP created the SCI

Recreation & Fitness Outreach Project. This

groundbreaking project involved partnering

with more than 20 organizations and

individuals to provide innovative programming

and activities for the Bay Area SCI community.

The project provided a range of specially

tailored fitness and wellness classes, group

outings, and cycling rides.

On May 4 & 5, BORP hosted the

Kathryn Black Invitational, a power

soccer tournament that engaged

athletes using “everyday” chairs to

play. BORP created this opportunity

because, with the advent of

expensive high-performance

power soccer wheelchairs,

many potential athletes have

been left on the sidelines. The

event was named in honor of the

late Kathryn Black who, with her

partner, Nancy Henderson, was

instrumental in founding the first

power soccer program in the USA.

On June 19, BORP’s Hall of Fame event

celebrated “The Women of BORP.” Kai

Fenton, Cal Women’s Assistant Basketball

Coach was the keynote speaker. Honorees

included: Ella Rodriguez; Susie Grimes;

Kristi Hruzewicz; The Women of

Quadzilla—Val Brown, Sun Chan,

Ann Cupolo-Freeman, Susie

Grimes, Bonnie Lewkowicz,

Lori McLeod, and Megan

Schirle. The Clif Bar Family

Foundation was also

honored for its longtime

support of BORP and the

disability community.

Throughout 2019, BORP continued

to deliver a range of services to

Bay Area veterans. On June 2,

BORP ran the day-long cycling event

at the 2019 Valor Games in which

over 90 veterans participated. With

funding from Disabled Sports USA,

BORP also expanded its veterans’

programing to deliver fitness, tai chi,

yoga and other classes onsite

at several Bay Area veteransserving

organizations, as

well as veterans’ classes at

the BORP Fitness Studio.

BORP means I rest better, my

social interactions are better. I

am always in pain but going to

BORP makes me feel good.”

of youth participants

said BORP increased

their confidence and


“As a kid with a disability,

BORP is my only

opportunity to play team

sports. Every kid should

have that chance. Being

able to do that through

BORP has really changed

my life.”

BORP was thrilled when senior

members of the BORP basketball

team, Garnett Silver-Hall and

Ben Thornton, were accepted

into the University of Arizona

where both will play in the

wheelchair basketball


“As an educator, I’ve seen BORP help so many

of my students find their independence, their

‘voice,’ and their connection to a community.”

“When I was first injured, I had no idea

about adaptive sports. When someone

introduced me to BORP I was blown away

by the things I was still able to do. My

passion for sport and being physically
