On Saturday, August 2, 2014 the InSports Foundation hosted a finale to the Team Smalls fundraiser at the Eagan Civic Arena. It included a free open skate as well as shirt and wristband sales. At the end of the benefit was a chuck-a-puck contest and check presentation. Nick’s friends and family came out to support his fight and future doctor check-ups.
Team Smalls was an inspiring campaign that grew tremendously over a 3-month span. Innovative Office Solutions employee, Scott Felton, ran for Nick in Grandma’s Marathon that included a contest for a FitBit. Eagan High School also provided lunchtime shirt and wristband sales for students and employees to get involved.
At the final check presentation, a total of $2,400 was raised. InSports hopes that this benefit provided Nick with not only financial support but community support as well. We wish the best for Nick as he goes off to play hockey as Gustavus Adolphus College this fall.

The InSports Foundation is a proud sponsor of the Twin Cities Classic, a charity all-star high school basketball event on August 10, 2014 at 2pm. The one-day event will feature the top Minnesota high school basketball players, as well as other prestigious top players from across the country. There will be 3 all-star games on this day; Additionally there will be a three-point shoot out and a slam-dunk contest.
The Twin Cities Classic is partnering up with the American Cancer Society, all of the proceeds will go towards research and families in need. The InSports Apparel division is happy to supply the jerseys for this event as well as provide event t-shirts that will be available for purchasing that day.
“The event is more than a showcase of basketball talent. It provides the players a platform to show they are more than just athletes. They are contributing to a cause bigger than themselves — something bigger than basketball. Those who passed away from cancer don’t leave a legacy of cancer; they leave a legacy of fight. Their fight to be there for their family and community. That fight continues with the Twin Cities Classic.” –www.TwinCitiesClassic.org
