BUFFALO, N.Y. -- For disabled but able kids, the Buffalo Bills Healthy Zone Fieldhouse played host to a unique and fun football clinic November 28th, and wide receiver David Nelson was on-hand to help the children learn about football. The Donny Thiry Foundation Football Clinic, run by the Town of Hamburg, N.Y. Recreation Department, was held each Monday in November.
Bonnie and Don Thiry have helped continue the clinic for the past five years in memory of their son Donny, who passed away from a series of complications related to a disease called neurofibromatosis. The clinic was open to individuals with physical/mental disabilities, Aspergers Syndrome and high functioning autistic children. The participants are disabled but able to participate in the activities.
