Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) March 4, 2009
George B. Boedecker, Jr. and the Boulder Colorado based Anthony H. Kruse Foundation surprised Colorado Head Football Coach Dan Hawkins today with a generous donation for his Youth Football Camps. The Foundation presented the Coach with an undisclosed amount on March 4th at the Dal Ward Athletic Center, in Boulder.
"We are extremely pleased in supporting Coach Hawkins and the CU Youth Football camps again this year" said Mr. Boedecker. "It has been a pleasure watching Coach Hawk and his staff take these camps to the next level each year. His dedication to the kids, and his overall commitment to his core values is nothing short of inspirational".
CU offers six camps for students in grades 1st - 8th. These high-energy non-contact camps allow younger football players a chance to develop and learn techniques at all positions from the CU Coaches and from many of the current Colorado football players. Per Coach Hawkins "The strengths of our camps include the coaching staff, the player to coach ratio (10-1), and our emphasis on teaching".
George B. Boedecker, Jr. is an entrepreneur and humanitarian, as well as the principal founder and creative force behind Crocs, Inc. (NASDAQ: CROX), where he served as a member of their Board of Directors from June, 2002, and as their Chief Executive Officer from July, 2002 through December, 2004.

Kruse Foundation (http://www.ahkfoundation.org), which he created in honor of Anthony Kruse, his friend and business partner who passed away in 2006.
