The Minnesota Youth Handball program would like to thank and recognize Timothy Leahy, who recently passed away, for donating money to the youth program. Tim’s wife Paula decided to recognize the great gift of handball in Tim’s life by donating money to help young people who love (or are perhaps just learning) handball. The youth program will use the funds that the Leahys have donated to send young people to the World handball competition.
Tim started playing handball when he was in college at Saint John’s University in the 1960s. He enjoyed playing handball regularly, in tournaments and recreationally, for nearly five decades. Tim made many life-long friends while playing handball, and he always encouraged young people to learn the sport because they can enjoy it for their entire lives. Tim certainly did!
