Illinois football’s yearly collaborations with Uplifting Athletes have gone pretty well in the past, but their 2017 event exceeded expectations! With your help, the Fighting Illini raised about $28,500 worth of funds in support of acoustic neuroma awareness and research, shattering last year’s mark of $21,500.
Based on the above tweets from the football team, Team Crouch won the actual weight-lifting contest between the eight squads. However, the real winners on Friday came from Team Allegretti because they managed to raise a staggering $9,241 of donations.
TCR sponsored Team Turner in our annual fundraising battle against Illini Board. With your help, we collected a total of $1,640 — that’s pretty fantastic! Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to top our competitors as Team Marchese came out on top with a valiant $4,250.
Thanks again to everyone who contributed! Rest assured, it was for a great cause.
