History

HOW DID THIS PROGRAM START?

img_3150Ed Berg wanted a safe place where vulnerable kids could have some positive fun and be inspired by first-class role modeling. In our 15th year, Ed’s vision has blossomed into a program that now serves more than 650 kidsĀ (approximately 100 kids each Saturday) and over 700 volunteers. We have moved to the larger OTR Recreation Center (1 block SE of Findlay Market). Ed’s daughter Nancy Berg Costello, her husband Kevin and many others inspired by Ed are now leaders committed to keeping his dream alive and “changing young lives one Saturday at a time.”

Thanks to our friends at the OTR Rec Center we now offer Fall Open Gym: 2019 Fall Open Gym Flyer
