Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh’s Family Foundation (NSFF) hosted 93 youth guests from the Overtown Youth Center (OYC), Tuesday, Aug. 11 at Miami Dolphins training camp. In addition to viewing the morning practice session, NSFF treated the youth to food, beverages and provided special “Suh’s Crew” T-shirts for the kids. After practice, Suh visited with the group sharing laughs, stories and encouraging messages in addition to taking photos. The OYC is a youth development agency co-founded by Alonzo Mourning.
“I’m happy the Ndamukong Suh Family Foundation invited The Overtown Youth Center and provided this opportunity for these kids to come to our training camp,” Suh said. “It’s important to expose our youth to activities that extend their boundaries, while creating a learning experience. Judging from their reactions, I believe the OYC kids had a great time.”
The Ndamukong Suh Family Foundation (NSFF) was established in 2010 by Ndamukong and his sister, Ngum, as an extension of the family’s dedication to the values of education, health/wellness and global outreach. Since its inception, NSFF has created programs and nurtured strategic partnerships to further its core values including: Suh’s Crew Campers, SUH Scholars Programs and an International Education Center in Cameroon and Jamaica. Upwards of 3,000 children have been impacted by NSFF programs … with that number growing each year.
