Tomorrow, Tuesday, June 3 at 1:00 p.m., at least 30 Tampa Bay Buccaneers players and staff, including defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, quarterback Mike Glennon, defensive end Michael Johnson, kicker Connor Barth, and Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford will have their heads shaved as part of the Pediatric Cancer Foundation’s Fifth Annual Bright House Networks Cut for a Cure Charity Challenge. Children who have previously battled or are currently battling cancer will visit the team’s practice facility, One Buccaneer Place, to assist with the head shaving event, through which the Buccaneers have a goal of raising $20,000 towards the cause.
The Buccaneers proudly support the Pediatric Cancer Foundation’s efforts towards providing medical research, programming and pediatric care for children and their families fighting pediatric cancer and blood disorders. Each year, members of the Buccaneers serve as celebrity runway escorts for young children battling cancer at the annual Fashion Funds the Cure fashion show to benefit the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. In the fall of 2012, the Buccaneers also hosted children and families affected by pediatric cancer to kick off National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month by dedicating a “Wall of Hope” at One Buccaneer Place. The Wall was displayed throughout the month of September as a daily reminder of the Buccaneers’ commitment to pediatric cancer research.
This spring, organizations throughout Tampa Bay have lent their support in the fight against cancer through the Fifth Annual Bright House Networks Cut for a Cure Charity Challenge. On Tuesday, June 3, Buccaneers players and staff, including those listed below, have committed to join the cause and will have their heads shaved by pediatric cancer patients at One Buccaneer Place. This year, nearly $280,000 has been raised through the Cut for a Cure to support the Pediatric Cancer Foundation and select nonprofit organizations. Fans are encouraged to join the Buccaneers in the fight against pediatric cancer by making a donation through the team’s fundraising page at www.pcfcutforacure.org.
