New Ohio Athletics Donation
(2008-03-27)
(WOUB) - The Ohio University Athletics Department is closer to getting out of red - after a huge donation Thursday.

The Holzer Clinic is donating one million dollars, making it the largest corporate donor of Ohio Athletics.

The money will be spread out evenly over five years.

But 50-thousand of the total goes to the Operational Endowment Campaign, which was started last year as a way to build up funds so the department balance the budget.

Ohio Athletic Director Kirby Hocutt says the money is a huge step in the right direction for his office.

Holzer Clinic President Wayne Munro says they will continue to support non-athletics based scholarships with the university as well - namely those with the Ohio University College of Medicine.
