Thielen Foundation Launches Friday Night Lights Fundraiser at Brooklyn Center

The Thielen Foundation is helping Brooklyn Center High School rekindle its stadium for the evening games.

School stadium lights went out during a 2018 football match; since then all events that previously took place under the lights – including football, lacrosse, soccer and track and field – have been forced to be held during the day.

Vikings catcher Adam Thielen and his wife Caitlin, through the Thielen Foundation, continue a more than two-year relationship with Brooklyn Center High School in launch a fundraising campaign. The Foundation’s goal of raising $ 250,000 will return Friday football games (and other sporting events) under the lights of Brooklyn Center High School. The campaign starts at $ 75,000.

The fundraiser will take place at the end of June and various initiatives will take place throughout the month:

Launch of the virtual silent auction: June 2-11 (closes at noon Pacific time); Autographed memorabilia will be available at auction.

Cameo campaign: June 12-20; Adam will accept a limited number of requests for personalized videos.

Limited Edition T-Shirt: June 20-30; The Thielen Foundation will present a predetermined number of limited edition t-shirt designs on its website.

Keep an eye on the Thielen Foundation Facebook and Instagram pages for more information on the specific events above.

On Wednesday June 16, the Thielens, members of the Thielen Foundation, BCHS sponsors and staff and student-athletes will make the breakthrough while participating in the safe dismantling and transport of the old system of lighting and unboxing new lights.

Dating back to 2019, the Thielen Foundation has entered into an exclusive partnership with Brooklyn Center High School by presenting their ChangeThruSport program, which aims to close the achievement gap for young male and female student-athletes in the district. Highlights of the program include renovating the school’s weight room, providing each student-athlete with $ 75 gift cards to SCHEELS, providing $ 50,000 in sports equipment, cost coverage athletes throughout the year and providing nutritious snacks to young athletes.

The Thielen Foundation was founded in 2018 and aims to create programs that will equip and enable young people to reach their full potential in life.
