HAMBURG – Ryan Nurmi was recently recognized as the recipient of the Donny Thiry Human Spirit Award by the town of Hamburg Department of Youth, Recreation and Senior Services at the annual service to youth awards banquet.

The award is given in memory of the late Donny Thiry, a young man who loved sports but was prevented from active participation due to physical limitations resulting from neurofibromatosis. Like Thiry, Nurmi, a student at Hamburg High School, has physical challenges resulting from a sledding accident four years ago and remains an active athlete in sled hockey, lacrosse and football.
