TC and TK are two of the most recognizable icons of the University of Northern Iowa. They are the embodiment of the Panther pride and spirit that can be seen around campus. TC and TK are essential members of the UNI Spirit Squads which promote UNI pride that convinces children and teenagers to consider UNI, current students to become involved on campus, and alumni to continue to support the university for the rest of their lives. TC and TK help create a community of pride and support for the University of Northern Iowa.
Each year, TC and TK have been requested to make more and more personal appearances on top of attending every home UNI athletic event. Last year alone, Team TC and TK put in more than 2,000 volunteer hours spreading Panther pride across the state of Iowa. As you can imagine, this causes a lot of wear and tear on the mascots, their wardrobe, and their security members. Team TC /TK is in desperate need of a tune up.
TC and TK are one-of-a-kind, custom designed characters from Street Characters Inc., who produce mascots of many professional sports teams. Our mascots are high quality, but it comes at a price. We cannot meet the financial needs of maintaining the condition and appearance of TC and TK from head to paw on our own.
That is why we are taking this opportunity to reach out to our students, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends to help us raise the funding we need to allow the program to continue inspiring Panther fans. We are asking you to lend a paw to help Team TC and TK maintain the tradition of promoting Panther pride across Iowa. Your donation will help TC, TK, and the rest of the team cover the high costs of the program and continue spreading UNI spirit and excitement. TC and TK embody the Panther spirit at UNI, but we need your help to be able to do so.
