With our offline donations and SOLD OUT Golf Outing our total fundraising dollars are over $13,000! With your help we've surpassed last year's total and still have time to hit our skydive goal!
Help us hit $60,000 and skydive with Coach English!
This year for our 10th Annual EMU Football Golf Outing we decided to try something different. Coach really wanted to finish his facility projects which already consist of a new indoor practice facility (The Bubble), an updated outdoor facility, completely upgrading the team room and most recently, with last year's Golf Outing contributions, revamped the locker room.
Fundraising efforts will go to improve:
Player Locker Room // Coaches Locker Room Bathrooms
Team Building // Training Room
Equipment Room Upgrades

$3000 - Golf a Round of 18 with Coach English
Since all fundraising dollars are going to contribute to our 10th Annual Golf Outing, what better way to say thank you for your support than to golf with Coach English?! Spend 18 holes at the beautiful and recently renovated Eagle Crest Resort at a mutually agreed upon date. Enjoy this once in a lifetime experience to see if you can tackle Coach off the field and when it's 4th and long, if you have what it takes to go for it!
$2500 - Skydive with EMUFB Assistant Coaches!
Time to FLY! If we hit or exceed $30,000 in fundraising efforts (between our IndieGoGo campaign and Golf Outing), assistant coaches Ryan Oshnock, Mike Hart, Tom Burpee and Blair Wagner will all be skydiving! You'll be able to ride with them from Ypsilanti to Skydive Tecumseh, compliments of LaFontaine Buick GMC of Ann Arbor and skydive with one of the coaches! Your on site training, jump and equipment is all included. There are 4 coaches crazy enough to participate, meaning first come first serve as to which coach you'd like to jump with. In the event we don't reach the $30,000 goal, you'll still get to ride with the coaches to Skydive Tecumseh and participate in the skydive. Maybe some smooth talking on your part can convince them to skydive with you.
$5000 - Skydive with Coach English!
Skydive with Coach English! If we hit or exceed our overall goal of $60,000 in fundraising efforts (between our IndieGoGo campaign and Golf Outing), Coach English will be skydiving and you can join him! You'll be able to ride with him from Ypsilanti to Skydive Tecumseh, compliments of LaFontaine Buick GMC of Ann Arbor and spend the day and jump with coach! Your on site training, jump and equipment is all included and you'll get to ride in the plane and jump out of it with Coach English. In the event we don't reach the $60,000 goal, you'll still get to ride with the coach to Skydive Tecumseh, spend the day with coach and participate in the skydive.
Our guys work just as hard, if not harder, than anyone else in the country. They deserve the facilities to compete on a championship level and your donation will provide them that opportunity. You can have a direct impact on the 2013 season and those to come after it.
