Big Blue View, Big Cat Country Compete To Raise Money For Cancer Charity

New, 4 comments

We have a competition between two blogs to see which can raise the most money for charity.

In one corner we have Big Blue View, SB Nation's New York Giants blog. In the other corner, Big Cat Country, home of SB Nation's Jacksonville Jaguars blog. The two "Big" blogs are set to battle it out in a drive to raise money for the Jay Fund, a charity that helps the families of children battling cancer.

The Jay Fund was started by Tom Coughlin. Of course, Coughlin is the current coach of the Giants but he was also at one time the coach of the Jaguars. It was there in Jacksonville that he started the Jay Fund.

The Tom Coughlin Jay Fund Foundation was created in 1996 in honor of Jay McGillis. Jay was a special young man who developed leukemia while a member of Coach Coughlin's team at Boston College. In the eight months between Jay's diagnosis and the day he lost his battle with cancer, the Coughlin family saw first hand the physical, emotional and financial strains the illness caused the McGillis Family. After going through the tragic events with Jay's family, Coach Coughlin vowed that if he ever had the chance, he would create a way to help families with children battling cancer.

The two blogs will be raising money around their 2014 draft coverage, dubbing their efforts a "Draft Drive". Even though it's a competition between Big Blue View and Big Cat Country, the real winner is the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund. And since these two blogs are part of the SB Nation network, we feel like winners, too. We couldn't be more proud of their efforts.

If you would like to donate, go here and put either Big Blue View or Big Cat Country in the "Dedicated to" line to donate on behalf of one of the blogs.
