NC State & UCF to hold Touchdown Fan Challenge during Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl

North Carolina State University and The University of Central Florida college football programs are looking to turn touchdowns into pediatric brain cancer research dollars. Each team is holding a Touchdown Fan Challenge as part of its appearance in the Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl to support its chosen charity - Team Jack Foundation. For the Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl in St. Petersburg on December 26 each touchdown the Wolfpack and Knights score will support pediatric brain cancer research. Fans can support each football program and its student-athletes by making a pledge, one-time donation, or donation with Bitcoin through the official online Touchdown Fan Challenge site at

The Team Jack Foundation was founded by the family of Jack Hoffman, the now 9-year old Nebraska boy who is best known for his friendship with Rex Burkhead and his 69-yard ESPY winning touchdown run in the 2013 Nebraska spring game. Thanks to overwhelming support by the state of Nebraska, and nationwide attention, Team Jack is committed to raising substantial money for the sole purpose of funding relevant pediatric brain cancer research and raising awareness for the disease. With an overall survival rate of just around 70 percent, there is a lot of work that lies ahead. Since its inception, the Team Jack movement has raised approximately $2 million for pediatric brain cancer research. The Team Jack Foundation is working with world-renowned researchers, directly, to develop relevant and impactful research initiatives.  Now more than ever, researchers need your help.
