The Finish Line Youth Foundation Announces Second-Quarter 2012 Grants

The Finish Line Youth Foundation today announced the award of nearly $200,000 to its grant recipients in the second quarter of 2012. Among these was a $62,053 grant awarded to Damar Services of Indianapolis. The 25 other grants also went to organizations in 16 states and the District of Columbia that place an importance on youth development and an active lifestyle.

“Our mission is to make a real, lasting impact on the lives of youth across the nation,” said Marty Posch, executive director of the Youth Foundation. “We’re working harder than ever to ensure we dedicate our resources to projects that promote healthy, active lifestyles.”

The Youth Foundation supports qualified, non-profit organizations that provide community-based access to athletics for kids, as well as camps that provide services to those who are disadvantaged or disabled.
