“Every time I go rafting or climb the Sky Trail, I’m reminded just how much pure fun it is,” said Elizabeth Laurent, director of marketing and sales at OKC’s RIVERSPORT Adventures. “Whether you come out with your family or a group of friends, you’ll remember what it’s like to play and laugh like you did as a kid. It’s a great way to spend a day.”
