Super Bowl winning coach Jon Gruden and ESPN NFL host Suzy Kolber were the keynote speakers for this year’s “Meet Me at the 50” fundraising event that was put on by the Jacksonville Jaguars to raise money for breast cancer research. The participating crowd showed up at EverBank Field on Thursday, October 13th and included several people who were either cancer survivors or had been greatly impacted by the illness due to friends or family suffering through it. There was live music and an auction on the field, and many people shared stories of compassion and strength with each other.
Gruden is a retired professional football coach who led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a Super Bowl win in 2003, and also spent some time coaching several other NFL teams including the Oakland Raiders and Philadelphia Eagles. After leaving professional football in 2008, Gruden worked for ESPN as a color analyst for its program Monday Night Football, and volunteered as a assistant offensive line coach at Carrollwood Day School in Tampa, Florida. Kolber is a native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and currently works as a football sideline reporter, co-producer and sportscaster for ESPN. She has been on a number of different programs including Monday Night Football, The Namath Incident, NASCAR Countdown and Fox Sports News.
The two football experts were the keynote speakers for this year’s “Meet Me at the 50” which was hosted by the Jacksonville Jaguars as a fundraiser for breast cancer research. It was a very profitable and meaningful event for the community.
