Oklahoma City, OK
The Thrive Outside Oklahoma City Community is led by the OKC RIVERSPORT Foundation together with a broad-based network of partners infusing an active, outdoor lifestyle among youth. The OKCBF also works with Native American tribes to implement meaningful paddlesport experiences in Oklahoma City tied to the American Indian Cultural Center, while also activating and inspiring similar exploration and opportunities in tribal lands which are within a short drive of Oklahoma City. To create the outdoor habit in kids and families, Oklahoma City is working towards offering the opportunity for every middle school student to engage in paddlesports as well as hiking, camping, climbing and other outdoor activities. Oklahoma City has spent the past 10 years developing world-class outdoor assets which will be utilized to leverage additional funding to support the long-term goal of bolstering our outdoor community.
