Now that summer is in full swing, the countdown to our 5th Annual InSports Golf Tournament has begun and we are working hard to make it the best one yet!
This year our tournament will take place on September 19th at The Wilds Golf Club in Prior Lake, MN. With a goal of raising $55,000, our team is hard at work. The event includes a full round of golf, along with a silent auction, lunch, cocktails, dinner, prizes and a presentation from the InSports team.
All of the funds raised at the tournament will go directly towards our mission of helping kids get in the game and will be filtered through our three programs: InSports Days, Scholarship and Team Sponsorship. We can't wait to see you all there!
We were lucky to have two beautiful, sunny days for our Minnesota United FC InSports Days on both May 12th and 20th! The 115 kids we helped got to experience two fun days of soccer by getting IN the game at TCF Bank Stadium. The camps each entailed a skills clinic on the field then staying to enjoy the United FC soccer game!
HUGE thank you to everyone who volunteered, all our donors, board members, and supporters for allowing us to put on amazing events like these! We could not have done it without any of you, especially The Sanneh Foundation.
Congratulations to Marshall, Minnesota for being named the 2018 Minnesota Football Program of the Year! This spring, we took over the Marshall community to celebrate their football program's accomplishments and present the winning school with the In the Game Award!
Marshall is a tight-knit community and they welcomed us with open arms allowing for an exceptionally enjoyable experience! All of this would not have been possible without the partnership of the Minnesota Vikings, 3M, and Innovative Office Solutions.
Throughout our time there, we hosted a Vikings InSports and helped 300 kids get IN the game. Both Vikings players and local Marshall football players led alongside each other to help these kids get IN the game. Coach Bahlmann, head coach of the Marshall Senior High School football team, said “I think it’s been a great experience for everyone involved. Our players helping out with the young kids, and we had almost 300 young kids here and then the Vikings players have done a great job helping out and pitching in.” We also held a town festival and Vikings autograph signings at local restaurants in Marshall! It was a great day!
Additionally, we were so excited to present the $10,000 check to the Marshall football team to develop and enhance athletic opportunities in their community!
