Groce Family Team Fundraising Challenge
John Groce is in the midst of his fifth season in charge of the Fighting Illini Menís Basketball program. His wife Allison serves as a volunteer leader for the Champaign Area Regional Council for Make-A-Wish Illinois. They both keep the Make-A-Wish mission near and dear to their hearts, and as a result have issued a challenge to the community to show their support. For the 4th year in a row, the John and Allison Groce Family issued a generous matching challenge of up to $5,000 to help encourage teams to raise additional funds toward the Walk and Run for Wishes Champaign $50,000 goal. Every team dollar raised up to $5,000 will be matched by their challenge.
