Pittsford, N.Y.- A little bit of lunch to celebrate a rivalry for a good cause.
St. John Fisher College and the University of Rochester will compete Saturday night in the annual Courage Bowl football game which commemorates the courage of young children battling cancer.
Each year Camp Good Days selects three young boys who have been battling cancer to serve as Honorary Coaches and three young girls who have been battling cancer to serve as Honorary Cheerleaders.
On Wednesday, a Courage Bowl luncheon was held on the St. John Fisher campus for the honorary coaches and honorary cheerleaders picked to take part in the event.
At the end of the Courage Bowl, a trophy will be presented, which will later be inscribed with the date of the game, final score of the game, names of the six Honorary Coaches and the names of one player from each team who displays exceptional leadership and sportsmanship.
The kickoff begins at 7:00 p.m. Saturday at Growney Stadium.
