"Huskies Invest is about supporting the most fundamental and important part of our athletic department and that is the student-athletes. We want to spend a week shining a spotlight on our student-athletes across every program, and ask members of Huskie Nation to help us grow, help us advance, and help us continue the proud tradition of NIU Athletics by giving to the Campaign and to the Huskie Athletic Fund during this week."
As part of the ongoing Campaign to Sustain fundraising initiative, Northern Illinois University Athletics is inviting all Huskie fans, alumni and friends to show their support for NIU’s 17 sport programs and 400 student-athletes who are working every day to continue to build on the tradition of excellence established by their predecessors in Cardinal and Black.
This week is an opportunity to show your Huskie Pride and for those on the fringe to get involved, regardless of the size of contribution. There are a number of giving options within the Campaign to Sustain and a strong desire by NIU Athletics to complete specific projects, namely the nutrition center and video room, that directly impact a great number of Huskie student-athletes. For former NIU student-athletes and those who have an affinity to a certain sport, opportunities to support those programs exist as well.
"The Campaign to Sustain is an extremely important initiative as we build the future of NIU Athletics, and this Huskies Invest Week of Giving is another way to bring attention to this effort," Frazier said.
