Tight Shave: Prominent Bucs to Join Fight Against Pediatric Cancer

Posted May 31, 2013

Next Friday, a group of well-known Buccaneer figures, including General Manager Mark Dominik will have their heads shaved as part of the Pediatric Cancer Foundation's Cut for a Cure Charity Challenge


Last year, the Pediatric Cancer Foundation dedicated a "Wall of Hope" on the grounds of One Buccaneer Place, a reminder of the ongoing fight to eliminate childhood cancer and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' commitment to the cause.  This year, the foundation has something else in mind for the Bucs' headquarters: a shiny new dome.

 

That dome will belong to General Manager Mark Dominik, and he won't be alone in going clean up top.   Next Friday, the Buccaneers will take part in the "Cut for a Cure Charity Challenge," the Pediatric Cancer Foundation's latest initiative.  In order to raise money for the battle against this deadly disease, and to strengthen the community's resolve, Dominik and a surprise group of well-known Buccaneer representatives will have their heads shaved at team headquarters.  The names of those joining the team's G.M. in giving up their locks for the cause will be revealed next week leading up to the actual event.

 

Dominik and the Buccaneers are proud supporters of the Pediatric Cancer Foundation and its indispensable efforts.  The focus of the Foundation is to fund research for less toxic, more targeted therapies with the support of the nation’s leading hospitals.  Last year, the Wall of Hope, which was on display at One Buccaneer Place through September, helped bring attention to that cause.  This year, some very prominent Buccaneer figures will become walking reminders of the fight against pediatric cancer, at the same time generating funds to help in that effort.

 

Those wishing to donate to the cause can visit the Buccaneers PCF fundraising page here.  The Cut for a Cure Charity Challenge is a community-wide effort throughout the Bay area aimed at supporting medical research, programming and pediatric care for children and families battling pediatric cancer and blood disorders.
