Vince and Barbara Dooley are known and loved throughout Georgia, not only for the decades they devoted to the University of Georgia football and athletics programs, but also for their tireless efforts in supporting worthwhile causes in Georgia. Winship is one of their most important commitments. The Dooleys have successfully battled cancer themselves – Barbara with breast cancer, and Vince with throat cancer - and say they want to do all they can to help others win the fight.
"Georgia and its people mean a lot to Barbara and me. If we can help in the fight against cancer in our state, then we will do that," said Coach Vince Dooley. "And we believe that the best way to help is to support the excellent research programs at Winship Cancer Institute."
The Dooleys joined Winship's advisory board in 2012 and have served as Grand Marshals for the Winship Win the Fight 5K twice. Barbara has also served as emcee of Winship's 2017 Fashion Show.
