Sales from Lindsey Wilson-Campbellsville Football Game To Support Dakota Meyer Scholarship Fund for Marines

Posted by on Sep 23, 2011

COLUMBIA, Ky. — A portion of the proceeds from Saturday night’s Lindsey Wilson College-Campbellsville (Ky.) University football game at Blue Raider Stadium will be donated to the Sgt. Dakota Meyer “Challenge to America” Scholarship Fund.

A native of Southcentral Kentucky, Meyer was awarded the Medal of Honor earlier this month by President Obama.

Meyer has partnered with the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation to raise $1 million by the Foundation’s 50th anniversary on May 28, 2012. Meyer has also issued a “Challenge to America” to match his efforts and raise an additional $1 million to honor Marines by educating their children.

The challenge allows Americans to help wounded Marines from all conflicts — especially the past 10 years — and forever change their lives by investing in a Marine student’s future.

The LWC-Campbellsville game kicks off at 7 p.m. CT at Blue Raider Stadium, 820 Hanley Lane. The game will be broadcast on DuoCounty Channel 2, WAIN-FM and lindseyathletics.com
