Bucs Participate In Second Annual Beach Cleanup

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Suzuki Marine USA teamed up to clean up local beaches for the second-consecutive year on Wednesday. This year's event took place at Ben T. Davis Beach, with 150 representatives from the Buccaneers staff and Suzuki leadership and company volunteers partnering with regional non-profit Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful.

The event kicked off at 2 p.m. ET, with Buccaneers offensive lineman Luke Goedeke spearheading the efforts with representatives from the Buccaneers and Suzuki. During the initiative, 427.7 pounds of trash was collected on the local beach including sneakers, plastics, fishing line, sweaters, glass bottles and cans. The largest item found was a 10-foot wooden plank on the sand.

Rachaad White Hosts Big Brothers Big Sisters Program

Buccaneers' running back Rachaad White hosted 20 kids/adults that participated in the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kansas City program for a tour of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum on Friday afternoon. For White, the cause hit close to home. As a child, White, along with his Big John Waller, got involved in Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kansas City.

A tour was given by Cathie Moss on Friday, the NLBM's special events and tour coordinator, who provided insight on the history of the Negro Leagues. During the festivities, White hosted a meet and greet for local children at the Cleaver Family YMCA that he frequented as a kid. He played basketball with the kids, signed autographs and presented the YMCA with a joint donation of $5,000.

The camp portion took place on Saturday, June 1st at White's alma mater, Center High School from 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. CT. White took part in drills with the kids, engaged with the coaches and signed autographs. The camp was sponsored by Gates Bar-B-Q, a KC staple, and Big Brothers Big Sisters Organization of Kansas City.
