NFL RUSH
Buccaneers Shave Heads At Cancer Fundraiser

Nearly 40 Tampa Bay Buccaneers players and staff, including defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, defensive end Michael Johnson, quarterback Mike Glennon, kicker Connor Barth, and Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford had their heads shaved last week as part of the Pediatric Cancer Foundation's Fifth Annual Bright House Networks Cut for a Cure Charity Challenge.

Children who have previously battled or are currently battling cancer visited the team's practice facility, One Buccaneer Place, to assist with the head-shaving event, through which the Buccaneers are raising money for the cause. The event included a $10,000 donation from the team to the Pediatric Cancer Foundation.

"It's an inspiration to us, because what we do is nothing compared to what they have to do, what they have to fight for," said Barth. "They just want to be normal kids and have a normal life, and we just want to show the support we have for them. We want them to know that it's cool to have no hair."

Organizations throughout Tampa lent their support this spring in the fight against cancer through the Cut for a Cure, which has already raised nearly $290,000 in 2014 to support the Pediatric Cancer Foundation and select nonprofit organizations.
