Bay Area Outreach & Recreation Program (BORP) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization working to improve the health, independence and social integration of people with physical disabilities through sports, fitness and recreation programs. At BORP, we believe that sports and recreation provide a path to greater achievement to which all people should have access, and we continually strive to make this a reality.

BORP is headquartered in Berkeley, California and is the leading provider and promoter of accessible sports and recreation opportunities for children and adults with physical disabilities in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. In addition to our high quality innovative sports and recreation programs, our expert staff provides advocacy, trainings, referrals and consultation services and have helped initiate adaptive sports programs in several other cities across the state. BORP also conducts disability awareness trainings and adaptive sports exhibitions for a variety of community agencies and serves as a valuable resource to physical therapists, rehabilitation hospitals, parks and recreation departments and related organizations.

BORP offers year-round sports and recreation programs serving a wide variety of ages, interests and abilities. We serve people with many different types of physical disabilities in our programs including, but not limited to: amputations, paraplegia, quadriplegia, cerebral palsy, head injuries, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, spina bifida, strokes, sensory and visual impairments. Our activities incorporate disabled and non-disabled volunteers and are offered on a low-cost, no-cost, or sliding scale basis as appropriate. Transportation to many program activities is provided, as we have found that this is a critical barrier to participation for many people and contributes to the success of our programs. BORP also provides financial assistance to low-income participants and families to help cover sports equipment and tournament travel costs.
