Ruth Schultz Brighter Days Fund Web

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Ruth Schultz Bright Days Fund was created in honor of Howard Schultz's 10 years of service as President/CEO of the North Suburban YMCA (NSYMCA) Funding enhances positive experiences for youth in NSYMCA athletic, special needs, and youth programs, to promote new skills, enjoyment, health, community involvement, and leadership development.

 

M BBALL2.JPG 1475874082553Ruth L. Schultz (1917-2010)
Ruth Schultz was a true athlete in her youth who aspired to be a gym teacher and was a slugging first baseman on a women’s professional baseball team (before the days of A League of their Own) until the time she was married.

Ruth L. Schultz understood the benefits of healthy competition and later in life, she encouraged her children to embark on their own youthful careers in competitive sports and other endeavors. She never forgot that sports were meant to be fun when they were played.

She took the competitive drive and the leadership skills she honed through sports and turned them into a lifetime of volunteer service that made a difference to many agencies ranging from HIAS (The Hebrew Immigration Aid Society), PTA, and Boy Scouts, and the thousands of people they helped on an annual basis.

She also never gave up her belief that we must always strive to make the world a better place. Into her 90’s she remained active in charitable organizations impassioned by the decades she spent applying her skills through service to others. Ruth Schultz was the mother of three sons, 6 grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren.

 


 

Howard Howard Schultz
As active as a volunteer Ruth Schultz was, she was a devoted mother to her three sons, Allan, Jack and Howard. Today, Howard is the current President/ CEO of the North Suburban YMCA, the second longest tenured director in the Y’s history. Howard has not forgotten the lessons his mother taught him about keeping sports fun, and that you are only going to be as good at something as the effort you put into it.  He also possesses her deep respect for improving the lives of those in need, and is dedicated to making commitments of time and self to serve others at the Y and in the broader community, such as his volunteer work with Rotary and the National YMCA movement.

  


 

 DSC2046 EDITThe Y Difference

Nationwide over 70% of all young athletes suffer some form of burnout, and dropout of athletics by age 13, while at the same time 1 out of 3 are now overweight or obese.

The North Suburban YMCA understands why parents often feel pressured to want their children to play on the “right” team. More importantly, we understand why kids want to play and why they often quit. Rather than offering activities that set high expectations that cause undue stress, our focus is on offering athletic and youth development programs that are fun and engaging, while teaching individual skills that promote growth, build confidence, improve social skills, and provide opportunities for personal independence and leadership development.

The NSYMCA’s nurturing environment, where children are guided in developmental athletics, arts and service projects by supportive coaches and teachers has developed programming that allows children to find their own paths fulfillment and interest.

Gifts to the Ruth Schultz Bright Days Fund will help the Y to enhance its Youth Athletic and Leadership Development programs. The Fund will help equip youth with the skills that will enable them to actively make changes, overcome obstacles and create new opportunities in their community just as Ruth Schultz did in her life.

Web SideSponsors and Donations Needed for
11th Annual Ken & Alta Thiel Strong Kids Dinner

The Strong Kids Dinner is the signature event of the North Suburban YMCA. It is our most important fundraiser, so sponsors and in-kind donations are critical to its success. Funds raised from the event help offset the cost of memberships and programs for children, families and adults because the NSYMCA believes that, within the limits of available funding, everyone should receive the help they need to reach their full potential.

 

This year’s event will feature special mystery box prizes up for bid in both a Live and Silent Auction, a family-style meal prepared by Pinstripes of Northbrook, as well as a chance to win other epic prizes. A festive super hero theme will be the backdrop for the event, which attracted 400 local residents, business persons, and community leaders from throughout the Northern Suburbs.

 

Local businesses can also be a hero to families in the community by becoming a sponsor or donating Silent or Live Auction, such as:

                                      • Restaurant gift certificates
