Adopt an Athlete

The Nebraska Sports Council offers an opportunity for low-income youth to take part in events such as the Cornhusker State Games at no charge to the athlete. The average State Games entry fee is $27.  Those fees can be covered for underprivileged youth through the Adopt an Athlete Fund.

Due to rising needs, the assistance fund needs a big boost.  And, the fund is primarily fed by individual donors. Thankfully, the Sowers Club of Lincoln has provided a $2,500 contribution to kick off this year’s fund drive, but with projected requests of more than $13,000, every donation counts!  All $25 donors will be recognized in the Nebraska Sports Council Yearbook and will be listed at (below). Those who donate $100 or more will automatically join the NSC Booster Club and receive a special gift from the Nebraska Sports Council.

You can make your donation online at the link below or by sending a check to the Nebraska Sports Council office (P.O. Box 29366, Lincoln, NE 68529).
