Hy-Vee/Sanford Legends Raises Record Amount

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – A record $175,000 was raised by Hy-Vee/Sanford Legends in 2014, pushing the total for the annual event past $1.25 million.

The 2014 amount was the highest in the history of the event and brings the money raised by the Hy-Vee/Sanford Legends grant program to a nine-year total of $1,298,000.

The goal of the Hy-Vee/Sanford Legends program is to provide a learning opportunity for young student-athletes to grow and be inspired in the world of sports by providing different sporting clinics and camps.  Each year, celebrity athletes who represent the Legends goals—quality, integrity and character—are brought to Sioux Falls.

Nearly 5,000 participated in 2014 Legends events:

Free Legends Clinics (7) 2,500
Celebrity Football Camp 700
Kids' Triathlon 250
Legends Banquet 950
Legends Golf Tournament 425
Total Individuals 4,825

This year’s $175,000 will be divided in half to support the football camp grant program (high school teams who supported the Celebrity Football Camp) and the free sports clinics grant program (youth athletic organizations).
