How the Sports Legacy Fund Helped in Louisville in 2013
The membership of the NASC raised $12,000 for Run. Louisville, Run!, a program of the YMCA at Norton Commons, through a grant from the NASC Sports Legacy Fund, raised from the proceeds of the Sports Legacy Fund auction and raffle. More than 750 leaders in the sports events industry attended the annual Symposium and many supported the Sports Legacy Fund by donating items for the raffle and auction, sponsoring tables, and/or purchasing raffle tickets and bidding on auction items.
Run.Louisville, Run! provides an eight-week running program for deserving kids in the community and focuses on increasing self-esteem, promoting healthy living and offering a positive after-school experience.
“This grant is one of our largest to date,” said Mike Bramer, District Executive Director, YMCA at Norton Commons. “We serve about 120 youth with each program and now we will be able to quadruple the number of our participants in our Run Louisville Run program, where we teach young men and women the power of progressively realizing worthy goals while running.”
