On August 1, the Medford Parks & Recreation Foundation contributed a record-setting $21,195 to the City of Medford for youth program scholarships.

This funding will allow for over 500 youth to receive opportunities to participate in recreation programs, including swim lessons, tennis lessons, enrichment programming, and day camp programs offered by the Medford Parks & Recreation Department.

The June 2013 edition of Parks Uncorked held in partnership with the Medford Rogue Rotary raised a bulk of the funds. Other partnerships and events included the Lithia Open Tennis Tournament and Beat of the Rogue, an annual drum and bugle show featuring youth raising funds for youth.

Since 2006, the Medford Parks & Recreation Foundation
has contributed $97,200 towards youth program scholarships.
