Bucs raising $40K for National Pediatric Cancer Foundation's 'Cut for a Cure'

- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Wednesday joined the fight against childhood cancer through the Cut for a Cure to benefit the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation.  

More than 20 players and staff members had their heads and facial hair shaved by pediatric cancer patients and survivors in an effort to raise money and awareness to help eliminate childhood cancer.

Participants included Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford, defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, quarterback Jameis Winston, tackle Donovan Smith, guard Ali Marpet, tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, running back Charles Sims, safety Keith Tandy, tight end Danny Vitale, tight end Alan Cross, defensive tackle Travis Britz, and linebacker Luke Rhodes. This was the fourth consecutive year that the Buccaneers have participated in the program.

Through donations from the Buccaneers organization, as well as fundraising efforts by players, staff, and fans, $40,000 was raised this year for the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation – more than doubling the $20,000 goal originally set by the team.
