Summer Fun & Football
It was a beautiful day in Minneapolis on Tuesday, July 12th, as TLFF hosted The Larry Fitzgerald Youth Football Camp at Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Park.
This FREE 1-day camp provided instruction by experienced football coaches as well as several former NFL players. They taught skills, safety and the fundamentals of football for 165 youth ages 7-14.
The camp provided lunch, T-shirts, certificates and all the necessities at no cost! The camp was followed by a Back-to-School backpack giveaway in partnership with Bell Bank to assist children in being fully equipped for the new school year ahead. We were excited to have such a great turnout and to witness so many youth join Larry Fitzgerald Jr. & team, for a fun and exciting day of lessons and non-contact football. The kids were able to take photos and listen to words of encouragement and inspiration from Larry which they truly enjoyed.
This year's camp was made possible in part by the NFL Foundation's USA Football grant, the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, Minneapolis Public Schools, Bell Bank and you, our donors! With your continued help and support, we look forward to facilitating more youth camps and activities that provide opportunity and continue to inspire.
