Cure Bowl Added to Sun Belt Bowl Lineup – While most NCAA bowl games make contributions to charity, few include the name of their cause in their title.
“The Cure Bowl is the first of its kind to combine the passions of college football with the importance of supporting breast cancer research,” said Myra Biblowit, President & CEO of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation who took part in the announcement. “The funds raised through this exciting partnership will enable critical research investigations that are bringing us one step closer to finding the cure.”
Alan Gooch, the Executive Director of the Orlando Sports Foundation and former player, coach and Hall of Fame Inductee at UCF will be the bowl’s Executive Director. “The Orlando Sports Foundation is excited about the opportunity to provide the student-athletes of the American Athletic Conference and the Sun Belt Conference an opportunity to play in an NCAA postseason bowl here in Orlando and to give the Breast Cancer Research Foundation a national platform to fund cancer research at the highest level. Gooch and the Orlando Sports Foundation will provide management of the event and day-to-day operations of the bowl.
