Lake Erie

College issued the following news


Lake Erie

College is pleased to welcome

University of Notre Dame’s most

famous alumnus, Daniel ‘Rudy’ Ruettiger as part of the

College’s Founders Day celebration.

Join us Thursday, November 4 at 2 p.m. for an afternoon of

inspiration and motivation. The event is free, open to the public

and will be held in the Morley Music Building.

As a member of the Notre Dame

University Fighting Irish

football team, Rudy defined both his

personal history and collegiate sports in a mere 27 seconds when he

sacked the quarterback in the only play of his


football career, while an exuberant

audience chanted the now famous line RU-DY, RU-DY, RU-DY! Rudy’s

historic moment culminated his unwavering determination to play


football for the Fighting Irish

despite years of criticism, objections and obstacles.

Today, his message of “Yes I Can” is delivered to schools,

corporations and widely-recognized leaders including President

George Bush, General Colin Powell and Zig Ziglar. Speaker, author

and philanthropist, Rudy has established the Rudy Foundation whose

mission is to positively affect the lives of children cognitively,

emotionally, physically and spiritually. The Rudy Award Program was

created by the Rudy Ruettiger Foundation to recognize children who

make an outstanding exceptional effort to do their personal best

every day, overcome obstacles, set goals, stay on track to reach

their dreams and build the qualities of character, courage,

contribution and commitment into their lives every day.
