The uDrove® Humanitarian Bowl is devoted to the recognition of the positive impact teams, coaches and student-athletes have in their communities and their leadership roles in promoting humanitarian efforts. It was originally inspired by the World Sports Humanitarian Hall of Fame, located here at the Bronco Stadium, which honors athletes across all sports for their humanitarian leadership.
We are working on behalf of the uDrove Humanitarian Bowl to build Rock 'n Bowl Week, a community festival and fundraiser in downtown Boise featuring local businesses, artists and entertainment the week of the game.
Our goal is to help Boise embrace and take ownership of the uDrove Humanitarian Bowl and utilize its economic impact to benefit our local economy, and raise money for a local non-profit.
We accomplish this by creating a "passport" to our community in the form of a wristband. The wristband costs $10 and will get you access to all Rock 'n Bowl Week events and entry into contests to win tickets to the Humanitarian Bowl. It will also grant you discounts at local businesses, restaurants and bars.
We will donate 20% of wristband sales to the local non-profit, Commit 65.
The goal of Commit 65 is to create a national platform (the flight) from which to launch an ongoing national awareness campaign about childhood sexual abuse. The founder, Matt Pipkin, and his dad, Chet, both pilots (Chet is a B-737 Captain for American Airlines), will attempt to break the 51-year-old world flight endurance record of 64 days and 22 hours of nonstop flight. Matt will use the flight as a vehicle to raise awareness and share his story of overcoming childhood sexual abuse in an effort to help others in similar shoes to see that their experience was not their fault, that they have nothing to be ashamed of, and that they can talk with someone who cares.
