                   Western Illinois University Fighting Leathernecks

                                          $17 for 17 Campaign                                          

Western Illinois Athletics serves to benefit our student-athletes in every way possible. Our mission is to provide an outstanding intercollegiate athletics experience to an academically successful and diverse NCAA Division I student-athlete population.

While we strive daily to achieve this mission through our performance in the classroom, the community, and in competition, it’s critical for the success of our mission to never be content. As a team, we can continue to improve the resources we provide our student-athletes on a daily basis, giving them the greatest opportunity to succeed both in the classroom and on the playing field.

With a goal of 400 gifts representing our 400 student-athletes and paying honor to our 17 varsity athletic teams and cheer squad, gifts of $17 or more will be used to upgrade areas of our program that impact all student-athletes.

Our Fuel Zone, which supplies athletes with the nutrients they need to compete at the highest level, will be revamped, creating new opportunities for our Leathernecks to recover and refuel like never before. Our coaches, faculty, and staff are committed to providing an outstanding experience.

We take pride in being Leathernecks, just as you do.

Please consider making your gift today to support our 400 deserving student-athletes as we
revamp our Fuel Zone. Together, we can ensure we are providing new opportunities for our
Leathernecks to succeed!
