To kick off Childhood Cancer Awareness Month this September and commemorate the 100th anniversary of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, University of Georgia Head Football Coach Mark Richt and Georgia Tech Head Football Coach Paul Johnson are issuing a challenge to their fans across the state of Georgia.
Every year, more children die from pediatric cancer than any other disease. Coach Richt and Coach Johnson are encouraging their fans to team up with them and help do something about this devastating disease during the month of September.
Both coaches are challenging their fans to make a $100 donation in honor of Children’s 100th anniversary. Participants will be registered to enter to win one of the following prizes:
- UGA fans are eligible to win one of 16 Coach Richt autographed footballs
- GT fans are eligible to win one of 16 Coach Johnson autographed footballs
- All participants are eligible to win one of 32 official NCAA baseballs signed by, Braves Hall of Fame pitcher, John Smoltz who is also a loyal, longtime supporter of the Aflac Cancer Center
In a final drawing, one UGA fan and one GT fan will be chosen from the donors to receive two tickets each to the annual UGA/GT state championship game on Saturday, November 28 at Grant Field in Atlanta. The fan of the winning team will be on the field during the Governor’s Cup presentation by Governor Nathan Deal and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to the winning coach and team in a postgame ceremony.
