This is a great way for fans of the Illini to support the team and help raise some money for a great cause. 

FightingIllini - The leadership team of the Illinois Chapter and all the members of the 2018 Fighting Illini squad is asking fans to support them when Illinois plays Rutgers (October 6), Purdue (October 13), Wisconsin (October 20) and Maryland (October 27) by making a pledge through the Illinois Chapter online Touchdown Pledge Drive website.

Now the easy joke would be that this is a risk-free pledge based on the Illini's past success on the field. They are better this year and are showing great improvement.

All proceeds from the Touchdown Drive go to help the Rare Disease Community.
