Taking their well-known rivalry off the field, Bowling Green State University and the University of Toledo are teaming up to support student scholarships, athletics, essential programs and more with the Battle of I-75 Giving Challenge from Nov. 6-14.
The friendly competition kicks off on Monday, Nov. 6, at BattleofI75.org where alumni, friends and supporters can give a minimum of $5 to be counted as a donor and make a positive impact on students and programs at either BGSU or UToledo. The challenge wraps up at noon on Tuesday, Nov. 14, hours before the match-up between the Falcons and Rockets on the gridiron in Bowling Green.
Fostering school spirit, the winner of the Battle of I-75 Giving Challenge will be announced during the game at Doyt L. Perry Stadium where the university with the most donor participation – not dollars raised – will claim victory and bragging rights.
“The friendly rivalry between Bowling Green State University and the University of Toledo has been a longtime tradition for our alumni and supporters,” BGSU President Rodney K. Rogers said. “The Battle of I-75 Giving Challenge is a fun way to engage in the competition and show school pride while ultimately supporting our students through scholarships and other initiatives for the student experience. This is truly a rivalry for good, and we are so grateful to those who continue to generously support our students.”
“One of the primary ways universities improve the world we share is by educating and preparing the leaders of tomorrow. All of you can help,” UToledo President Gregory Postel said. “This year we have added a fun and exciting way for our alumni and fans to support our missions with the Battle of I-75 Giving Challenge connected to our spirited rivalry between UToledo and BGSU. I look forward to Team Toledo supporting our Rockets in this inaugural challenge.”
