The Minnesota Chill Family want to congratulate our former student athlete David Roddy on being drafted into the NBA! It has been an honor to work with you from the beginning of your athletic career, to now.
We wish you continued success and will continue our mission of creating a positive space for student athletes to grow into their greatness!
The Minnesota Chill Foundation is a proud recipient of a $25,000 donation from The Thielen Foundation to continue our working supporting the underserved members of our community! Thielen Foundation, established in September 2018, is dedicated to serving, educating and inspiring those in need to achieve their full potential.
The students were so excited and inspired that one student asked the mayor, “Can I be you one day?” He responded, “I will clear out my desk when your ready!”
