JOIN OUR TEAM AND PARTNERS IN BRINGING BACK THE (stadium) LIGHTS, HOPE AND ENCOURAGEMENT TO
Brooklyn Center High School.
The impact of re-igniting the stadium lights will have an incremental positive effect on the students, staff and whole community of Brooklyn Center.
Thielen Foundation’s #ChangeThruSport program is committed to replacing the stadium lights at Brooklyn Center High School (BCHS). Their stadium lights were red-tagged by Xcel Energy several years ago due to safety concerns and since that time – athletes have not been able to play games under the lights. That impacts football, soccer, lacrosse & track athletes, the overall culture of the school, and high school sports experience. Daytime start times mean parents and students are unable to come to games and the “Friday night lights” feel is gone. By installing new stadium lights, Thielen Foundation and partners will be restoring school spirit and pride in the community of Brooklyn Center and enable student athletes to enjoy high school experiences and grow through valuable life lessons through the platform of sports!
