Melissa checked out the Bowl Blitz

If you see people walking around decked out in football gear asking for donations it is all for the renovations of the Gordie Howe bowl.

The Friends of the Bowl campaign organizers are hoping to score big today with their Bowl Blitz fundraiser which will have football players travel from business to business in downtown Saskatoon hoping for a little help.

The Friends of the Bowl Foundation has raised just about $4 million of its $11-million goal to complete the revitalization.

The atmosphere this morning was great as the volunteers began to roll in excited to help out. And one thing that I learned today that I thought was great was the increase of females, both at the children level and youth level, looking to get involved in the sport.
