Our movement-based enrichment activities and health-related curriculum includes free week-long soccer camps at parks in Minneapolis and St. Paul for kids from low-income families.

We recently sat down with the Executive Director of the Buford Foundation, Cliff McEvoy to learn more about this great organization:

What is the Buford Foundation?

The Buford Foundation was started by Father Kenney, a local Priest, who would go to hospitals in the area to entertain kids.  While he was visiting these hospitals one of the children had a puppet named Buford, and when she passed away she told her parents she wanted Father Kenney to have Buford. From there, Buford has become the symbol of courage that kids today need. (more…)
