ATLANTA, Jan. 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Cancer Society (ACS), through its National Football League (NFL) Crucial Catch partnership, announced today that TikTok star Addison Rae will give one lucky fan the VIP experience of a lifetime at Super Bowl LVI at SoFi Stadium. Among other opportunities, the winner of the Crucial Catch Super Bowl Sweepstakes will get to watch the game with Rae while supporting the fight against cancer.
The social media star is lending her support to Crucial Catch's mission to fight cancer by increasing access to early detection and prevention resources. Fans can enter for a chance to win the Crucial Catch VIP weekend at Super Bowl and support the American Cancer Society through its annual Super Bowl Sweepstakes, which will provide an all-expense paid trip to the NFL's biggest game.
"I'm so proud to be a part of this year's campaign with the American Cancer Society. This cause is incredibly close to my heart as my PawPaw battled cancer when I was a child and it's something I hate to hear or see any other person have to go through," said Rae. "Fortunately for me, my PawPaw won his battle, but I know that is not the case for so many others. Through this work with the American Cancer Society, I hope we can help raise a significant amount of funds to help to continue to find a cure – for me it's in honor of my PawPaw."
ACS and the NFL will offer the Crucial Catch Super Bowl Sweepstakes winner and one guest round trip airfare to Los Angeles, lodging, a meet and greet with the star, pregame sideline passes, two tickets to Super Bowl LVI sitting with Rae, tickets to the NFL Honors awards show in Los Angeles and other exclusive perks.

"The data are clear -- early detection of cancer saves lives. We at the American Cancer Society are deeply grateful to the NFL for continued support of our mission to improve the lives of cancer patients and their families," said Dr. Karen Knudsen, chief executive officer of the American Cancer Society. "Increasing awareness about the importance of cancer screening is an essential part of the playbook, and we are grateful to Addison Rae for further amplifying this life saving message. The Super Bowl Sweepstakes will serve to promote action toward a return to screening, as a key part of working together to tackle cancer."
