York College Soccer star latest recipient of assistance from the Nebraska Greats Foundation
The Nebraska Greats Foundation (501C-3 nonprofit) www.negreats.org which serves former letter winners from Nebraska’s 4-year colleges and universities who face medical and financial challenges, announces a grant to aid a current student-athlete.
Christofer Monje, a senior Goalkeeper for the York College Panthers recently underwent facial surgery after being injured in a game. Medical expenses exceeded those covered by school provided insurance. Monje, originally from Santiago, Chile applied for a grant to cover those expenses directly related to the procedure and post operative care. “When it came to cover the medical expenses, it was really hard, and more so being an international student. This is when The Nebraska Greats Foundation came to help me. Without them I couldn’t afford this injury and might have had to leave school.” Said Monje.
The NGF serves both female and male athletes from 16 Nebraska colleges and Universities. A complete list of past recipients can be found at www.negreats.org. Donations to the NE Greats are welcomed at www.negreats.org/giving
