MinnesoHead Football Coach Glen Mason, his wife Kate and the entire Golden Gopher football team have renewed their partnership with the Children's Cancer Research Fund (CCRF) for the 2001 season. The Minnesota gridiron program is once again committed to helping children and assisting the CCRF in raising money for cancer research at the University of Minnesota Cancer Center.
To kick off the Golden Gophers' involvement with CCRF for the second- straight year, Mason and his wife, Kate, host the second annual Breakfast Huddle with the Gophers on Saturday, April 28, at 8:30 a.m. at the Metrodome prior to the spring football game at 11 a.m. Tickets for the event are $20 for adults and $15 for children age 12 and under in advance, and $25 per adult or child at the door. The event includes a hot breakfast with Coach Mason, an appearance by Goldy Gopher and a 2001 football poster. Last year's breakfast raised $10,000.
The Golden Gophers are also committed to the "First Down for CCRF" pledge drive for the second year. Last year's program raised $15,000.
