On September 20, Ty Farley was inducted into the Edina Athletic Hall of Fame. But Farley’s life story tells us more about resilience and fortitude than can be measured by athletic achievement. Ty Farley of Edina was adopted in 1969 by Harrison and Marie Farley when he was just 18 months old. He would become the couple’s sixth child. As the only child of color in an all-white family, the Farleys knew they’d need strength to guide their son through the challenges that would be ahead.
