Thank you to the Schultz foundation

Since 2009, several of us have been teaching the wonderful sport of handball to young people at the Midway YMCA and at the University of Minnesota.  This year we are sending six teenage players to the World Handball Championship in Minneapolis, August 9-19, 2018.  Three of these young men came from families that could not afford membership at the YMCA.  Because of the scholarships from your Foundation, these young men are able to use the Y handball courts during the summer and prepare for the international competition in August.

The Minnesota Youth Handball community would like to thank you for the scholarships you made available for youth in St. Paul.  It is making a real difference for our program and for these young men.  We hope to make Minnesota and the Midway Y proud at the World Championships. Again thank you for your support of Youth in Minnesota.

 

 

Thank you to tim and paula leahy

The Minnesota Youth Handball program would like to thank and recognize Timothy Leahy, who recently passed away, for donating money to the youth program. Tim’s wife Paula decided to recognize the great gift of handball in Tim’s life by donating money to help young people who love (or are perhaps just learning) handball. The youth program will use the funds that the Leahys have donated to send young people to the World handball competition.

Tim started playing handball when he was in college at Saint John’s University in the 1960s.  He enjoyed playing handball regularly, in tournaments and recreationally, for nearly five decades. Tim made many life-long friends while playing handball, and he always encouraged young people to learn the sport because they can enjoy it for their entire lives. Tim certainly did!
