    The following WildcatsBlog entry is courtesy of the Northwestern Athletic Development office and is aimed at recruiting former student-athletes to become donors to the Wildcat Fund. Even if you are not a former Wildcat on the field, you can still give to the Fund while reaching out to your former student-athlete friends and encouraging them to take part in the challenge!

    The Northwestern Athletic Department kicked off its Student-Athlete Alumni Challenge July 21 with the goal of encouraging 100 N-Club members to make a gift to the Wildcat Fund by Aug. 31.

    This challenge is being supported by Tyke Nollman (football '66), who has pledged $10,000 to the Wildcat Fund if the goal is reached.

    Read below for Tyke's Challenge and join us in supporting Northwestern Athletics and our student-athletes!


    Dear N Club Member,

    As a former football player and 1966 graduate of Northwestern University, I continue to wear my Wildcat pride. The lessons that I learned throughout my four years as a student-athlete are ones that have shaped me throughout my personal and professional life, and, 45 years later, still impact me daily.

    It is important that Northwestern is able to continue to provide its student-athletes with the same experiences that it gave to me and each of us. As competitors and students, each current athlete is a representation of the unique Northwestern experience. In order to carry on the legacy that we helped create, we need you! That is why I am issuing a Student-Athlete Alumni Challenge!

    The Wildcat Fund goal is to try to increase our level of participation by 100 donors by the end of the fiscal year, Aug. 31, 2011. As a group, we can create great opportunities for our athletes. If we can successfully meet this goal, I have pledged to donate $10,000 to the Wildcat Fund!

    I have pledged my pride and loyalty to Northwestern University, and hope that you will do the same.

    Gifts to the Wildcat Fun can be made by:

    Donations of any size will help to continue and better the Northwestern athletic experience. Thank you for your time and support, and as always, GO 'CATS!

    Annual giving is such a great way to support Northwestern and NU athletics! Big ups to Mr. Nollman for backing this challenge. Should be no problem: 100 Wildcat Fund donors by Aug. 31 (end of NU fiscal year). It's all about participating, whether it's $25 or $2500! Get there 'Cats!
