Tim Russert

RUSSERT--Tim. The Board of Governors, Trustees, staff and young people of Boys & Girls Clubs of America wish to express our profound sorrow over the sudden passing of Tim Russert. As a longtime advocate for children, Tim cared deeply and gave back generously to children, especially those most in need. He served with distinction as a member of the board of directors of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, and was beloved by all. We were privileged to have counted Tim as a true friend and supporter, and a man of great character and compassion, and our nation will miss him greatly. Boys & Girls Clubs of America Rick Goings, Chairman Roxanne Spillett, President/CEO
