THANK YOU. We are grateful for your support of the Nebraska Sports Council, and we appreciate your adherence to the recommendations of our nation, state and local wellness leaders. Modifying your behaviors is not always easy, but its the ultimate expression of kindness, so keep up the great work!

Concerning NSC events, we have postponed the 3rd annual Nebraska Corporate Games and are working on September dates.

The Mud Run, Aug. 15 and Pumpkin Run (TBA) are also on as scheduled as is our Golf For Gold Fundraiser Scramble, June 8 at Woodland Hills, and our CSG Night at the Ballpark at Haymarket Park on June 25.

Obviously, we will make changes as required for the health and safety of all, and we will communicate any changes via email and our social media accounts.

Concerning our operations, we have closed our office until further notice. However, the staff and interns are working remotely and eager to answer your questions at: or 402-471-2544 (leave a voicemail and well call you back).
