About Us

– Created in 1994 by two college roommates who desired that everyone should have fun in life through recreation.

– Elevate was established as a non-profit in 2006 by Logan Murphy, Kenny Hilpp, and Doug Grote to provide recreation services to organizations, churches, businesses, schools, and individuals.

– Officially “re-launched” in August, 2011 with a full-time focus on its mission.

– Today, Elevate recognizes the need and demand for recreation especially for at risk kids who deserve and need to have fun on a regular and consistent basis.

-Elevate has provided monthly recreational programming for Kaleidescope, a younger adult day care center for individuals with special needs since 2012.

-We’re proud to be part of Metro United Way’s Black Male Achievement initiative – committed to changing the odds for black boys in our community.
