You're going to pregame for the Nebraska game anyway - you might as well do it with Eleven Warriors for a good cause.
The Eleven Dubgate returns to bring together a perfect College Football Saturday in Columbus with the vibrant 11W community. If you're unfamiliar with its history, you can learn more about it here.
This year's edition – our 8th – takes place Saturday 11/3 beginning at 9 a.m. ahead of Ohio State's game with Nebraska. And it's going to be right behind the Varsity Club on Tuttle Park Place and Norwich Ave. You can't miss it.
100% of proceeds from the Eleven Dubgate will go to DownSyndrome Achieves, a research advocacy group that works to maximize the health and potential of every individual with Down syndrome by championing the development of critical research capabilities needed to better understand Down Syndrome and to accelerate breakthrough discoveries.
This event has raised thousands and helps fund the nation’s first centralized and dedicated biobank for Down Syndrome research.
