August 1st marks the 6-year anniversary of the 35W bridge collapse in Minneapolis. Lindsay Walz, founder of courageous heARTS, is a
survivor of this tragedy. She has spent the past six years healing her body, mind and heart. The most important tools she was given on the
journey were paints, brushes and blank pieces of paper. Through her art, she was able to tell her story in new and profound ways.
courageous heARTS is her gift to the community that has given her so much.
MTN's summer investments were quite fruitful this year. Although MTN'S Step-Up students are around well into August, the camps for this summer
have been successfully completed. The G2G Camp, a camp for girls interested in video game design hosted at the Science Museum, was a great
success with 14 young ladies in participation. The Journalism Camp was a more intimate experience with 4 students (there are couple pictured above).
The students produced a documentary short on an issue important to them and it will air on MTN's channel 17/Create in the coming weeks.
Thanks for a job well done, students!
These Guys Are All Derbied Out!
In late June these racy reptiles skirted across the track for a whole bunch of entertaining shenanigans! The University of Minnesota Amplatz
Children’s Hospital Turtle Derby is an annual fundraising event that provides many of the extras that make the children's hospital a healing
place with a heart. The race took place on the West Bank in front of the Children’s Hospital. MTN was honored to be a partner again this year
and we hope the fundraising went well!
The Northeast Parade
The 84th Annual Celebrate Northeast Parade was yet another success for MTN's summer! The Step-Up interns started working for MTN the
day of the parade and did an outstanding job. You can watch the entire parade here!
