Six local nonprofits were awarded more than $80,000 in grants by Columbus Youth Foundation (CYF) at the Triple-A Homerun Derby! The recipient organizations range in their individual missions, but all promote health and wellness in central Ohio youth through recreation and sports.

“Promoting healthy living and life skills has been the focus of the Columbus Youth Foundation since its formation in 1955,” said Cathy Lyttle, Chair of CYF. “The foundation’s longstanding relationship to Huntington Park and the Clippers made this event the perfect occasion to award these funds to these remarkable organizations who share our vision for improving lives through recreation and sports.” View more photos.
