Colts Partnered with Huntington Bank to Host Underserved Youth

Posted Aug 15, 2014

On Wednesday, July 30, 25 underserved youth from Young Men, Inc. of Indianapolis, Indiana were treated as “Huntington Camp Heroes” for a day at Colt’s Training Camp in Anderson, IN.

INDIANAPOLIS – While Colts players are normally treated as “heroes” during training camp; Huntington Bank and the Indianapolis Colts switched gears and focused on the underserved youth of Indianapolis. The day included a special “VIP” practice viewing experience, meet-and-greet with Head Coach Chuck Pagano and the opportunity to visit Colts City. The children were selected from Young Men Inc., a ministry based program geared towards empowering young African-American males and other at risk males emotionally, physically and spiritually.

The youth arrived at Anderson University at 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon to enjoy Colts City and watch the last hour of practice in a special “VIP” area. Immediately following practice, the children enthusiastically participated in the team huddle as practice ended and experienced a meet-and-greet session with Coach Pagano and Colts players.

The “Huntington Camp Heroes” initiative was created to provide youth, who may not otherwise have the opportunity, with the chance to experience Colts Training Camp. As a part of the program, the Colts and Huntington provided transportation to and from training camp, backpacks filled with school supplies, t-shirts and goodie bags for each of the children.

Huntington is the Official Bank of the Indianapolis Colts and has partnered with the team on several community initiatives over the years. This is the sixth year the Colts and Huntington have teamed up for the “Huntington Camp Heroes” program.
