Support Yellow Team in the 2016 Illinois Football Lift for Life

The yearly fundraising battle between The Champaign Room and Illini Board renews once more.

Illinois Lift For Life

The broiling hot heat of summer is upon us, causing mirages and heat dreams of Fighting Illini football to start swimming in our heads. And that can only mean one thing: it's time for our beloved Champaigniacs to defend our honor with their wallets and out-fundraise the dastardly villains at Illini Board in the annual Illinois Lift For Life. We have not yet beaten Robert's army, but maybe this is the year.

For those who do not know, Illinois joined Uplifting Athletes in 2012 to help raise awareness and funds for research to help combat acoustic neuroma, a rare and nasty disease that cost former Illini OL Andrew Carter his college career. So how can you help?

Well, you can help by donating to any team you choose but in my humble opinion, you would be best served by donating to the Yellow Team. The gentlemen of the Yellow Team don't know it yet, but they are our adopted children this summer. So give 'til it hurts because it's a great cause and we would like to not lose to Robert again.
