The Dolphins announced today that they will donate $150,000 in grants to refurbish Archbishop Curley's football field (along with Boggs Field in Hollywood), as part of the NFL's Grassroots Program. From the press release:
Archbishop Curley Notre Dame High School serves about 400 students who use the field for athletic leagues, physical education classes and summer programs. With a $100,000 grant from the NFL Grassroots Program, the school will be able to maintain a natural turf grass field. The school will offer field use to youth leagues practices and community outreach programs. Blue Cross Blue Shield and an anonymous donor are providing matching funds.
Once completed, that will make 12 fields the Dolphins have helped refurbish since 1999 in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties.
