Marching Illini March Forth Campaign Exceeds All Expectations!
A huge THANK YOU to the MI Community! The Marching Illini raised over $37,000 in a one-day fundraising campaign; March Forth on March 4th. The ambitious goal of 375 individual donors was chosen to represent the 375 members of the MI, and represents more than double last year's goal of 150 donors.
