In 1961, Paul Anderson climbed on a bike and rode to Boys Town in Omaha, Nebraska from Vidalia, Georgia. His wife, Glenda, followed in a van with a giant banner that read “the World’s Strongest Man.” In this way, Paul and Glenda began spreading the word about their desire to start the Paul Anderson Youth Home.
Throughout this event, we are able to provide opportunities for our young men to grow and share. At the PAYH, we teach them to value our history and those who have made this work possible. This year, we are honoring not only what Paul Anderson began in 1961, but also YOU, our partners and friends, who continue the legacy of Paul and Glenda. Through the investment of your time, talent, and treasure, thousands of families have been impacted. Your gifts benefit the boys at the PAYH.
