The Nebraska Football Team has a long, meaningful history supporting the Pediatric Brain Cancer community. Sparked by the 69-yard touchdown run of pediatric brain cancer patient Jack Hoffman in the 2013 Spring Football Game, the team decided to take on the task of raising awareness and funds for the rare disease. Since then, the Road Race has helped raise more than $125,000 for pediatric brain cancer research.

Nebraska Football is committed to a cure!
