Huskers Head to Toe campaign to benefit student-athletes

Herbie Husker socks

Nebraska fans are invited to step up to support Husker student-athletes through N-Vest Nebraska and celebrate the debut of the new Herbie Husker.

The University of Nebraska–Lincoln will hold its third annual Huskers Head to Toe campaign Sept. 14 through Sept. 29. During the event, anyone who donates $65 or more to N-Vest Nebraska through the University of Nebraska Foundation will receive a pair of exclusive socks featuring the updated Herbie Husker. The modernized version of Herbie Husker was introduced earlier this year to mark the iconic mascot’s 50th year.

Supporters can follow the Huskers Head to Toe campaign and contribute here. N-Vest Nebraska rewards Husker scholarship student-athletes for academic performance, success toward graduation and retention. Student-athletes who meet established academic benchmarks receive financial support for their academic achievements — helping to alleviate financial stressors and allowing them to pursue their academic, professional and athletic goals.

Gifts made will support Only in Nebraska: A Campaign for Our University’s Future, a historic effort to engage at least 150,000 benefactors to give $3 billion to support University of Nebraska students, faculty, academic and clinical programs and research to address the needs of the state.
