CAG is having a brunch in Chicago on June 11th, 2017 from 11am until 2pm!
Please join us at this important event as we discuss our plans to continue the mission of helping student athletes maximize their academic and athletic experiences and facilitate their successful life transitions beyond sports for the remainder of 2017.
Collegiate Athlete Gamechangers, CAG is embarking on its first fundraising event that will feature The Longest Day Of Golf LDOG on Monday June 12th at Ravinia Green Golf Course in Riverwoods, IL. Funding will further our mission of helping student athletes maximize their academic and athletic experiences and facilitate their successful life transitions beyond sports.
Cures Within Reach CWR has graciously invited us to collaborate with them for this event. CWR catalyzes repurposing research, tests, existing drugs, and devices to improve the quality of life for people with catastrophic diseases and to accelerate the discovery of new treatments. They are committed to inspiring and funding researchers with innovative ideas that might otherwise remain unexplored.
Joining us on June 12th are CAG members, Northwestern Alums and NUBAA members: Jeff Sterling (NUBAA President), Willard Evans (NUBAA Board Member), Oliver Kupe (Merrill Lynch/NUBAA Sponsor), Kevin Brown, Rudy Germany, and Alex Moyer (NU Alum and CAG Board members). We will also be joined by local Golf Pro Jeff Weaver and former NFL Players, Hugh Green (Miami Dolphins) and Wendell Davis (Chicago Bears). We all look forward to promoting and raising funds for several worthy causes that will further our CAG mission.
Both entities look to changing the landscape for scholar athletes and for people living with uncured diseases by looking beyond and addressing their present challenges.
