Event Description:
Thompson is often remembered as one of the most decorated athletes to graduate from John Marshall High School in Rochester, MN, the leading rusher in University of Minnesota Gopher Football History and the first round draft pick of the Green Bay Packers where he spent 5 years before devoting his life to at-risk youth in Minnesota.

About to enter his 25th year with Bolder Options, Darrell Thompson has become very well known in Minnesota’s youth development circles. Originally funded by the Minneapolis Jaycees, Bolder Options is a comprehensive youth mentoring program that works with referred youth, age 10-14 that may be at-risk to delinquent or unhealthy behaviors. Youth are matched with a caring adult mentor and introduced to an active-lifestyle based program that provides guidance, support, and opportunities through one-on-one, small group, and family specific programming designed to help them make positive choices and live a healthier life. As the organization’s first full-time employee, Thompson was hired as program manager in the year of the program’s inception, 1993. After 5 years of success, Bolder Options became a separate 501 (c) 3 and Thompson was named Executive Director. He has grown the program to over 150 kids annually in the Twin Cities Metro program, recently expanded to his hometown Rochester, MN and leads 13 full-time employees and more than 25 volunteer  Advisory Committee members in the Bolder Options mission: Teaching youth to succeed in ALL of life’s races.
