This November, our 5 year old daughter spent seventeen days at C.S Mott Children’s Hospital. Shortly after arriving at the Emergency Room, Paige was admitted to the PICU and was diagnosed with Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome. Paige was intubated while she fought multiple viruses, bacterial infections and pneumonia. It was a terrifying time for our family but we had great faith in the medical team at C.S. Mott. We are extremely grateful for the lifesaving care our daughter received and we are very fortunate to have access to such a wonderful children’s hospital. Please join us in this fundraising event to support C.S. Mott and their ongoing efforts to care for sick children.
With many thanks,
Josh & Kristina Leege

At two rival schools — The Ohio State University and the University of Michigan — critical decisions are made every day. Only this is not a game.
Care providers in the pediatric intensive care units of U-M’s C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and OSU’s Nationwide Children’s Hospital are there at crucial times for the most vulnerable patients. These children are battling cancer, heart disease, head trauma, pneumonia, diabetes, and many other illnesses.
Despite rivalries on the football field, physicians and researchers at Mott and Nationwide have been strong partners in advancing innovative research, novel clinical programs, and education of physicians and staff — all to improve care for children who are critically ill.
Between now and the end of the Michigan vs. Ohio State football game on Saturday, November 24, both institutions will be raising funds during the third annual Goal Line Challenge, a friendly competition to support our vital work.
Donate online today to C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and help us beat OSU! Donations will be used at the designated site, regardless of the outcome on the gridiron.
Donations from The Goal Line Challenge benefit an endowment fund at Michigan Medicine. Gifts to the endowment will be administered as a permanent endowment under Michigan law and University policies.
