Changing Lives

The Oklahoma City Boathouse Foundation is changing lives. We believe you can do more, be more, than you ever thought you could be. And you can see it happening in our community of rowers, paddlers, cyclists, runners and adventure sports enthusiasts every day. 

People of all ages and all levels of ability are discovering the life-changing potential at the Oklahoma River. You don’t have to be an athlete to make it happen. Some changes are character building. Others open minds to new possibilities. And some lead to adventures never imagined. 

Corporate rowers tell us the sport brings co-workers together in ways that build new friendships. Dragon boaters learn about teamwork. New rowers and kayakers are amazed at how their new-found skills alter their lives – some with a sense of empowerment, others enjoying the serenity and balance of the sports.

Our Olympic hopefuls train on the Oklahoma River focused on competing in Rio in 2016. Across the country and around the world, athletes look forward to competing on the Oklahoma River’s world-class race venue and soon, racing on OKC’s new Whitewater Rafting & Kayak Center. The US Olympic Committee has recognized our efforts by naming us a US Olympic and Paralympic Training Site.

Kids in our youth outreach programs discover a world beyond what they’ve known. And our adaptive athletes experience a new-found freedom in their ability to participate – and compete – in rowing and paddle sports.

We are seeing a change in the way people see themselves and our city. We are becoming a healthier, more active community – and the Oklahoma City Boathouse Foundation is proud to be part of this momentum.

JOIN US

It’s not often that you have the opportunity to change lives in such important ways. We invite you to join us in further developing and sustaining these important initiatives. To learn how you can get involved – as an athlete, volunteer, corporate sponsor, donor or member of our community – contact us by email or call (405) 552-4040.
