About the Orlando Sports Foundation
The Orlando Sports Foundation is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to raising funding and awareness for cancer research. Our mission is to bring teams together to find a cure for cancer.
The signature event put on by the Orlando Sports Foundation is the Cure Bowl. The college football bowl game is played on the third Saturday each December at Orlando City Stadium. It has been used as a platform to raise funds for cancer research. Through four years, over $3.6 million has been raised for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). Those funds have been distributed internationally, which includes $1.1 million to local researcher Dr. Annette Khaled at the UCF College of Medicine.
