163 - TC5K 2022

On Sunday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Foundation hosted the 10th annual Treasure Chests 5K + Fun Run, powered by Jabil. The event, which took place around the grounds of AdventHealth Training Center and Raymond James Stadium, coincided with the Buccaneers' involvement in the NFL-wide _Crucial Catch: Intercept Cancer _initiative. Amongst the thousands of participants, this year's Male Overall Winner, Travis Lucas of Tampa, finished with a time of 16:23, and the event's Female Overall Winner, Kaitlyn Campo of Tampa, completed the race in 18:30.

"It is amazing to see what was merely an idea 10 years ago to supplement the NFL's Crucial Catch initiative, grow into this incredible tradition of raising awareness. Whether it's family, close friends, or colleagues, breast cancer affects us all in some way," said Buccaneers Vice President of Community Impact Tara Battiatio. "On behalf of the Buccaneers Foundation, we want to thank our participants and everyone who comes together to raise awareness and help fund research in the process."

Including today's donation, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Foundation has distributed more than $390,000 since 2013 towards breast cancer research and patient services, benefitting the American Cancer Society, the Florida Cancer Specialists Foundation, the AdventHealth Foundation and the Moffitt Cancer Center Foundation.

Below are the results of the top overall finishers in each major category of Sunday morning's race:

For the 14th consecutive year, the NFL and the American Cancer Society are working together to support the fight against cancer through "Crucial Catch: Intercept Cancer." The initiative, which is being highlighted throughout the month of October, addresses early detection and risk reduction efforts across the league. Crucial Catch encourages people to catch cancer early when it may be easier to treat.

The Buccaneers are supporting early detection and risk-reduction efforts by wearing specially-designed apparel throughout the month, amongst numerous awareness activations on gameday. Fans are encouraged to visit, where game-worn Crucial Catch merchandise will be auctioned. The NFL does not profit from the sale of Crucial Catch merchandise, as charitable contributions are donated to the American Cancer Society to supports its CHANGE grant program.
