Mission Statement

The Orlando Sports Foundation's mission is bringing teams together to find a cure for cancer.

Description

The Cure Bowl is more than a game. Played on the third Saturday in December each year at Exploria Stadium in Orlando, this NCAA college football bowl game is televised nationally on CBS Sports Network.

Funds raised from the Cure Bowl directly benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is the largest private funder of breast cancer research worldwide, and the highest-rated breast cancer organization in the United States, investing 91 cents of every donated dollar directly into core programs.

This bowl game has helped to put Orlando at the center of some of the world’s greatest advancements in cancer science. Since 2015, the bowl has raised a collective $3.6 million. Almost $1 million of the funds raised have gone to Dr. Annette Khaled, professor at the UCF College of Medicine’s Burnett School of Biomedical Sciences and head of the medical school’s cancer research division.
