ABOUT SWEET FEET FOR STRIKES
FORMERLY THE MAYO BOWL
Blue Sky Sports & Entertainment conceived and created the Mayo Bowl, newly renamed Sweet Feet for Strikes, for former Patriots defensive captain and Pro Bowler Jerod Mayo in 2010. In its inaugural year, all proceeds benefited Pitching in for Kids. The following year, Blue Sky introduced Jerod to Boston Medical Center. Impressed with the work they do, Jerod and Blue Sky invited BMC to be one of two beneficiaries of the Mayo Bowl. Since 2014 Boston Medical Center has been the sole beneficiary of the Mayo Bowl and an integral partner in the growth of Boston's premier celebrity event. The Mayo Bowl has enabled Boston's inner city children to receive exceptional care without exception from Boston Medical Center. Each year the Mayo Bowl sells out all twenty (20) bowling lanes, attracts well over 400 event attendees and reaches over 4.2 million individuals through social media.
This year, Patriots Super Bowl Champion and running back, James White, is continuing the Mayo Bowl tradition after having co-hosted with Jerod in 2017. He is marking a new era for the event, which he has renamed Sweet Feet for Strikes. James and his wife Diana are excited to continue to raise funds for BMC that was set forth by Jerod & Chantel Mayo. James strongly believes that he has the ability to make a significant impact on the lives of children who are in need of medical support.
Sweet Feet for Strikes is the largest professional athlete attended event in the New England area.
Historically, Sweet Feet for Strikes has averaged over thirty five (35) current and retired New England Patriots players in attendance each year. Some of the players/celebrities that have been in attendance over the past eight (8) years include:
