    For the top donation, we offer the Exclusive Tour of the Sports Heartland of North America, led by The Allrounder’s editors! We’ll fly you to the Motor City. From there, you’ll visit nearby Ann Arbor, where Professor Yago Colás will lead you around the facilities of the University of Michigan, including the fabled “Big House,” home of the university’s football team and site of the NHL’s 2014 Winter Classic. Bruce Berglund will chauffeur you to Toronto, where Mike Buma will guide you through the Hockey Hall of Fame. We’ll dip back down into the US (stopping to see Niagara Falls) and stop at the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. Since we’re in the neighborhood, we’ll also visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Depending on the season, we’ll take in a game or two along the way.

    If you have a friend who wants to join you for the Exclusive Tour, we can add that person for an additional pledge of $5000.
