Norse Raise $1000 for Charity

Last Friday, the Faculty/Intramural All-Star Basketball Game for Charity took place during the late afternoon.

Students donated $2 each to attend.  Along with contributions from faculty, staff and the Athletic Department, the Norse helped raise $1000 for charity.  This year that amount will be split evenly and donated on behalf of the student body of Northfield Jr-Sr High School between Riley Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis and 85 Hope of Wabash.
According to Athletic Director Tony Uggen “We have been holding this game and donating money to charity for almost 20 years now and have been able to raise nearly $18000 over that span.  It’s a great way for our student body to make a difference and they have fun watching the game.  We are proud of our students here at NHS and happy we could make the donations to Riley and 85 Hope on their behalf.”  Uggen added “We’ve been donating
to Riley Children’s Hospital for years and this year chose 85 Hope to be our local charity.  They are quietly doing a lot of great things for those in need in our great community.”
According to their mission statement “85 Hope is inspired by the gospel to provide primary healthcare to uninsured, low income residents of Wabash County.”  You can gather more information or learn how you can volunteer to help by calling 260.274.0011 or visit their website at
