On Wednesday, May 31, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will continue their support in the fight against childhood cancer through the Cut for a Cure to benefit the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation. This is the fifth consecutive year that the Buccaneers will participate in the program, raising money and awareness to help eliminate childhood cancer. More than two dozen Buccaneers players, as well as Buccaneers staff members, are scheduled to have their heads or facial hair shaved or colored orange, the official color of the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation. Buccaneers already committed to participate, with assistance from pediatric cancer patients and survivors, include Gerald McCoy, Jameis Winston, Mike Evans, O.J. Howard, Cameron Brate, Ali Marpet, Donovan Smith, Will Gholston, and Joe Hawley, as well as Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford.

The Cut for a Cure campaign began earlier this spring as individuals, groups and organizations throughout Tampa Bay made charitable donations and had their heads and facial hair shaved to raise funds and awareness for childhood cancer research. Over the past four years, the Buccaneers have raised more than $110,000 to help fund research to eliminate childhood cancer, with a focus on research for less toxic, more targeted therapies.
