Sportech Partners with MN Adult & Teen Challenge
June 13, 2015
For almost 30 years, Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge has been restoring hope to teens and adults struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. This organization exists to assist people in breaking-free from their addictions by addressing their spiritual, emotional and physical needs, and has made a profound impact not only in Minnesota, but across the country.
Nestled between two picturesque lakes and the rolling hills of Buffalo, Minnesota lies Lakeside Academy— a former Girl Scout camp which MNTC purchased to house their at risk boys’ program. The yearlong programs taking place at the facility will be catered to 14 to 18 year-old boys, and will offer them the perfect opportunity to reflect, grow and heal. Construction is underway with hopes for a July 01 opening.
Sportech and Carlson Motorsports partnered with MNTC, supplying the new facility with a 2015 900 Crew Polaris Ranger to make getting around the wooded 45-acre property a bit easier. The vehicle was purchased through the Sportech and Carlson Motorsports Corporate Charitable Giving Program -—an employee led committee that at its core is a direct reflection of both Sportech and Carlson Motorsports’ core values.
“Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge is one of the most successful drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs in the country, and is a legacy charity that our organization feels strongly about getting behind. It was a no-brainer for us to help Teen Challenge out with something we know a little bit about — off road vehicles! MNTC is the best in the world, and their faith-based approach directly aligns with Sportech and Carlson Motorsports’ values. This is exactly the type of organization that we want to support” –Chris Carlson (CEO– Sportech Inc., Team Owner– Carlson Motorsports).
