During the evening hours on Ring the Bell, Reed and Karen Miller ’72 and Jim and Jane Sutow’80 prompted a flurry of gifts to Northwood with their individual challenges - the former to ski alumni and the latter to hockey alumni. They challenged skiers and hockey players to each get to 50 donors within a set time.  The competition was ON!  — we hope you had as much fun as we did on campus watching those numbers tick up – all for the benefit of Northwood! In case you were wondering: when the challenge was over, hockey reached 45 and skiers reached 32.
