The Jaguars Foundation has partnered with the Jacksonville community to raise cancer awareness as part of the NFL’s Crucial Catch program

Each year, through the NFL’s Crucial Catch initiative, NFL teams raise awareness of all cancers in their communities and honor survivors and those still fighting cancer. Through the Jaguars PREP program, the Jaguars Foundation teamed up with Clay County Athletics and the American Cancer Society to promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Jaguars PREP Friday Night Blitz high school football games.

The Jaguars Foundation provided seven college football teams with Crucial Catch helmet decals to wear in the game to raise awareness and support for an important cause. Each game was promoted as a PINK OUT game where fans were encouraged to wear pink.

These schools organized PINK OUT in their home matches:

The Jaguars Foundation also partnered with several nonprofit organizations to host Crucial Catch Night for more than 135 members affected by cancer in the Jacksonville community. The Jaguars Foundation hired Main Event Bowling to host a night of bowling, arcade games and laser tag, featuring Jaguars players OL Luke Fortner, DL Roy Robertson-Harris and CB Gregory Junior, members of The ROAR and Jaxson de Ville.

During the Jaguars Crucial Catch game against the Giants, the Jaguars recognized the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund before the game and breast cancer survivor Michele Sadala, with the American Cancer Society, was selected to perform the Jaguars First DUUUVAL.
