Nathan McMurry Thomas Fund

About the Tournament

The Nathan Thomas 6 v 6 Fall Tournament, started by Laurelhurst resident Sue Ofstad the summer after Nathan died, gives young recreational teams in the Portland area an opportunity to compete in a competitive but friendly tournament. Over the years hundreds of children and adults have participated in the tournament as players and volunteers. This is more than a soccer tournament, it is a celebration of children, families and neighbors working and playing together with a shared community heart. All proceeds go to the fund.
