TOPSoccer Awarded Murray Foundation Grants

LYSA TOPSoccer is the recipient of five grants from the Jerome S. and Grace H. Murray Foundation. The Foundation’s primary mission is to provide funding “for the care, training and education of people with disabilities and those who will provide education and training for people with disabilities.”

Megan, Ryan, and Shannon Bruggeman, descendants of the Murray family nominated LYSA TOPSoccer for consideration for the grants.  Ryan and Shannon were both TOPS volunteers.  Their support helps us to sponsor players, purchase equipment for our athletes, uniforms and participate in Special Olympics tournaments andCincinnati Fall Ball.

“We feel fortunate to have such passionate and dedicated volunteers as Ryan and Shannon and such good friends as the Bruggemann family,” said Jessie Birdwhistell, LYSA TOPSoccer league director. “We would like to sincerely thank the Murray Foundation for their contribution and support of LYSA TOPSoccer.”
