The Denison 5Knobel celebrates the Denison and Granville communities moving together to form a stronger community. This year the 2nd Annual Denison 5Knobel is honoring the Allison Knobel Sitton Scholarship Fund, International Student Scholarship Fund in honor of Ted Barclay, and Spencer Greene Oligo Brain Tumor Research Fund.
Proceeds from the Denison 5Knobel will benefit the below funds. If you would like to donate additional money above and beyond the entry fee, the address is provided below for the respective initiatives.
The International Student Scholarship Fund: In honor and memory of Ted Barclay, the 2nd Annual Denison 5Knobel will celebrate the coach, administrator, friend as well as an active community member. Barclay spent 35 years at Denison, retiring in 1997 with the rank of associate professor emeritus. Over the span, he served as the head coach for six different Big Red varsity programs. In 1979, he was appointed director of men’s athletics, a post he held for 12 years. The funds from this event will provide assistance to international students. Additional donations may be sent to: The International Student Scholarship Fund In Honor of Ted Barclay, c/o Denison University, P.O. Box 716, Granville, OH 43023.
The Oligo Research Fund: Spencer Greene, a Denison University senior, has been diagnosed with oligodendroglioma (Oligo), a rare type of brain tumor. While Oligos represent less than 5% of brain tumors, it is actually one of the more common ones since there are over 100 different types of brain tumors. There are no known cures and no effective treatment options, other than surgery. Oligos tend to grow slowly and as a result people with these tumors have an average life expectancy of 10 years, though there is fairly broad range. In July of 2011, the National Brain Tumor Society (NBTS) launched the Oligo Research Fund. Oligo Nation and NBTS work closely to build support for Oligo research and all fundraising efforts of Oligo Nation have been directed into this fund. Additional donations may be sent to:The Oligo Research Fund, c/o Denison University, P.O. Box 716, Granville, OH 43023
Allison Knobel Sitton Endowed Scholarship Fund: In 2011, former Denison President Dale Knobel and wife Tina Knobel lost their daughter, Allison Knobel Sitton, after a seven-year battle with breast cancer. In her honor, the Allison Knobel Sitton Endowed Scholarship Fund provides assistance to Denison female students based on financial need.
