The Timberwolves FastBreak Foundation honored BFW Charities—Veterans Pain Program with an on-court presentation during the Timberwolves' Wednesday night matchup against the Golden State Warriors at Target Center.

During the month of November, the Timberwolves FastBreak Foundation is celebrating Operation Minnesota Heroes, presented by the Roger and Nancy McCabe Foundation and POPP Communications, which serves to honor and recognize Minnesota troops and their families.

BFW Charities is a non-profit organization dedicated to doing health research and providing grants, services and basic home furnishings to people in our local communities, as well as abroad. The Veterans Pain Program provides medical grants for effective treatment to help relieve chronic pain for veterans of war. Our goal is to help veterans return to their daily lives as quickly and healthy as possible.

“We bought a package of 10 games and we’re going to honor veterans and let them enjoy the games,” Huseby said.

Minnesota Timberwolves President, Chris Wright along with Roger & Nancy McCabe presented a $5,000 check to Doug Huseby and Chris Barber from BFW Charities.

“Organizations like the Timberwolves and other organizations that care about people… that’s what we need. We have to start helping people. If we help people we’ll all win,” Huseby said.

The FastBreak Foundation works to ensure that those servicemen and women from Minnesota who dutifully serve their country at home and abroad have an opportunity to be recognized by the Timberwolves and their fans.

In the past year, the Minnesota Timberwolves Fastbreak Foundation and the Minnesota Lynx Foundation have combined to impact 2,028 organizations with $750,000 in-kind donations, 60,000 Tickets for Kids donations, 4,226 volunteer hours, 45 Heroes in the Making on-court presentations and fourteen $5,000 grants.
