Beyond Boundaries mission is to offer individuals of all ability levels, no matter physical, cognitive or economic situation, the opportunity to experience outdoor activities with the surrounding community.
Beyond Boundaries is all about adventures and making it possible for ALL! To date we have planned two fun adventures with Beyond Boundaries:

Sign-ups for the events are not open currently…more information to come.
A little word from Shep Roper, Executive Director of Beyond Boundaries on our rafting trip!
Hello, Jacob’s Chance! I am excited to be partnering and taking adventures with you! One of my favorite adventures is rafting. It is one we have been doing for several years. Imagine rafting on the lower James River under the city skyline. With the James River Park lining both banks of the river most of the way, escape the bustle of the city and immerse yourself in the natural playground of the river. We will outfit you with helmets, life jackets, and paddles before receiving a safety briefing from our guides. We will tackle the rapids of the James, stopping along the way to enjoy a snack and water. The trip typically lasts about 3 hours.
To help ease your concerns Beyond Boundaries will be doing a class on rafting to teach safety and help the participant get a feel for the raft and how to paddle or simply relax and enjoy the water. I have attached a video from one of your very own founding athletes of buddy ball, Janie Willis, her mother Robin and myself about her experiences with rafting with Beyond Boundaries.
I look forward to meeting everyone and to get these adventures underway!
