MADISON, Wis. -- The 2012 Wisconsin Football Spring Game presented by Culver’s will be held Saturday, April 28. Kickoff is set for 4 p.m. at Camp Randall Stadium, UW Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez announced Wednesday.
Tickets are $5 and are on sale now. Proceeds will benefit the UW Center for Nonprofits in the UW School of Human Ecology.
Money raised through ticket sales will specifically help fund student internships for UW students within nonprofit organizations. While demand for student interns is significant and growing, many nonprofit organizations do not have the financial capacity to support students (stipends, travel expenses, etc.).
The fund developed from the ticket sales at the game will launch a program to place UW students in nonprofit organizations, providing the students with critical practicum experiences while also benefitting the exponentially expanding nonprofit sector with next-generation talent.
Preceeding the game will be the annual Crazylegs Classic. The 8K run and two-mile walk get underway at 10 a.m. at the Capitol Square and finish inside Camp Randall Stadium. Registration for the Crazylegs Classic is now open.
