    EVANSTON, Ill. - Northwestern Athletics and Donate Life Illinois are proud to announce the Donate Life Northwestern Campaign, concurring with the 2013 Wildcats Football season.

    As part of the campaign, Donate Life Illinois will contribute $10 to the Wildcat Scholarship Fund for every loyal Northwestern fan who registers through the campaign as an organ, eye and tissue donor. If you are already a registered donor, Northwestern and Donate Life Illinois encourage you to share your decision with your family and friends.

    "Donate Life Illinois is excited to increase the number of individuals on the Illinois Organ/Tissue Donor Registry in partnership with Northwestern University," said Diane Hollingsworth, Chair of Donate Life Illinois. "Our hope is that all Wildcats will consider joining the registry to help end the wait for the 5,000 individuals in need of a lifesaving organ transplant."

    Donate Life Illinois Staff and Advocates will host a donor designation booth in Wildcat Alley, Presented by Cricket Wireless, for the duration of the 2013 season. Your first chance to register in-person will be this Saturday, April 6 from 10 a.m. until noon when the `Cats hold an open practice at Ryan Field. The Donate Life Illinois booth will be located at the main entrance, Gate M.

    To register, learn more about this campaign, and to track how much money has been raised throughout the 2013 season, please visit DonateLifeIllinois.org.
