The National Pediatric Cancer Foundation (NPCF) hosted their 8th annual cut and color event with The Tampa Bay Buccaneers yesterday. This event was hosted at the Buccaneers training center featuring the players and staff!
The foundation’s mission is dedicated to research and clinical trials to find less toxic and more effective treatments for childhood cancer. Their goal is to reduce the side effects of current treatments, improve survival rates and ultimately eliminate childhood cancer. At the event players and staff of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had the option to cut, or color their hair by one of the cancer children. Tom Brady was one of the players that decides to dye his hair to support Pediatric cancer.
This was the first event Tom Brady has done with the Buccaneers outside of football. This event raised over $118,00 for pediatric cancer research. The NPCF’s Content Marketing and Design employee, Anna Ranges says, “it was incredible to see the Buccaneers’ true personalities shine through their bonds with the children that have ultimately created ever-lasting memories for them. Our team at NPCF is so grateful for their generous community.”
