Eli Manning and wife pledge $1M to University of Mississippi Medical Center


Though debate over his quarterbacking skill appears often, Eli Manning’s character has never come into question.

Tuesday, Manning and his wife Abby bolstered that reputation by pledging $1 million to the Children’s of Mississippi $100 million capital campaign.

The couple, according to the announcement on the medical center’s website, will be helping generate publicity for the cause while also serving on the campaign’s fundraising committee.

The Center plans to use the $100 million to “fund an expansion and update of the neonatal intensive care unit, add more pediatric ICU rooms and surgical suites, create an imaging department just for children and expand the outpatient clinic so that care can be centralized and more convenient for families.”

Manning graduated from the University of Mississippi, affectionately known as Ole Miss, in 2003, with a 3.44 GPA and a degree in marketing.

He went on to become the 1st pick in the 2004 NFL Draft, chosen by the San Diego Chargers, and demanded a trade to the New York Giants, where he’s been a two-time Super Bowl champion.

100+ wins on the field and one more win off the field for Eli Manning.
