It is with great pride that I write to you that our 2012 Kay Yow Spring Game was able to raise over $33,000 in donations for the Kay Yow WBCA Cancer Fund and Kay Yow Endowment! All of us here at NC State Football and the Wolfpack athletic community would like to say ‘thank you’ to everyone who attended this year’s game and helped to make it such a success both on and off of the field. Spring at NC State truly is a fantastic time, and with your support the Kay Yow Spring Game is turning in to one of our most special annual traditions.
In addition to the generous contributions of the 24,797 fans in attendance, I would like to recognize the Holt Foundation and Wolfpack Club for their efforts in making the 2012 Spring Game one to remember. The first annual Holt Foundation ‘Answers for Cancer’ 5K was a fantastic start to Saturday, and we appreciate the Holt brothers for their continued support and $2,500 contribution to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. Additionally, the 2nd Annual Wolfpack Club BBQ Bowl and tailgate party was another great success bringing in additional contributions for the Fund and Endowment and creating an exciting atmosphere for fans of all ages.
We have now entered a critical stretch in our preparations for the 2012 football season. Our student-athletes will work hard in the classroom finishing up the spring semester, and begin an important phase of the summer conditioning program with new Strength and Conditioning Coach Corey Edmond. As we prepare for the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game versus Tennessee on August 31st, we do so knowing that we have the support of the greatest fans in the state of North Carolina. We hope that you all will be able to join us in Atlanta as we take on the Volunteers in our opening week and help us make the 2012 season one to remember!
Thank you again for the continued support, and as always …. GO PACK!
