About the Cure Bowl

The Cure Bowl is more than a game. It’s a celebration of the women who are living with breast cancer today and those who will face it tomorrow. It’s a memoriam of those who have lost their battle and hope for those who fight to survive. But more than that, it’s a rally cry to the world to raise awareness and help bring an end to this deadly disease once and for all.

This nationally televised game will be played at the newly rebuilt Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida. Funds raised from the Cure Bowl will directly benefit the nation’s highest rated breast cancer organization, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, whose mission is committed to exclusively funding cancer research.

Teams and fans will be part of this historic new bowl game that feature teams from The American Athletic Conference* and The Sun Belt Conference* as it aims to someday put an end to cancer.

Together, we can tackle this!
