Tim M. Murch, Chairman of the Buddy Fund, a local charity that provides sports equipment to underserved at-risk youth, announced Amy Tipton has joined the Board of Operations.

Amy, a mother and former elementary education teacher, hopes to give kids a new vision for their future through team experiences. Her devotion to kids and our city will give The Buddy Fund a passionate view in extending its outreach.

The Buddy Fund is a charity helping St. Louis area children without regard to race, ethnicity or religion. It was founded in 1962 by St. Louis Sportscaster Buddy Blattner to supply new sports equipment to other charities and organizations that used sports to help redirect and change the lives of at-risk underserved youth, including boys and girls clubs, police athletic leagues, homes for kids, community centers and after school programs.
