Community Involvement


What’s Happening

The Ryan Huffman Foundation raises money for local charities within Northumberland County that support Mental Health, Addiction and Youth in Sport.   It is incredible how a vision, a dream and a desire to give back can profoundly affect a community! It is our mission to make a difference in the addiction and mental health community of Northumberland County!

We host an Annual Charity Golf Tournament in Support of Mental Health and Addiction to raise money that has since created the UpTurn Program at YMCA Northumberland as well as making donations to KidSport Northumberland.

“You can only keep what you have by giving it away!”

We are excited to announce that the Ryan Huffman Foundation 3rd Annual Charity Golf Tournament in Support of Mental Health, Addiction and the importance of Youth in Sport is being held on Friday, May 10th 2024 at Dalewood Golf Club.

The UpTurn Program offered at YMCA Northumberland,  looks to support people living with addictions on their journey to better mental health through physical activity with full access to the YMCA, programming and support from their staff.   The UpTurn program connects people with a YThrive coach to get them started on their path to fitness, as well as access to Y@Home+ for online at-home workouts, and EatPlantJoy plant-based meal plan.


Northumberland Kid Sport

Northumberland Kid Sport provides grants to help cover the cost of registration fees so that all kids aged 18 and under in Northumberland County can play a season of sport recreationally.   The Northumberland Chapter accepts applications and administers grants of up to $250 per child/year, for kids who live in Northumberland County, or in one of the other communities they serve.   It was our pleasure to be able to support this amazing program in our community to help keep kids in sport and activities.
