Bucs go bald for pediatric cancer research

Tampa, Florida -- On Tuesday, over 40 Bucs players and staff buzzed their hair in support of the kids who fight cancer.

Quarterback Mike Glennon is one of the newest bald Buccaneers, along with running back Mike James. Part of the 5th Annual Cut for a Cure challenge where the cancer patients actually got to use the clippers.

"The Buccaneers' support, from players to staff today, is just outstanding, "said Nancy Crane, executive director of the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. "Our kids love to come here and when they do, they feel like they're a part of this team. We're going to find a cure with the type of support and help we get from the Buccaneers, and so many people are here today, 'cutting for a cure.'"

The Bucs hoped to raise $20,000 for the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. So far this year, nearly $290,000 has been raised through the Cut for a Cure to support the Pediatric Cancer Foundation and select nonprofit organizations.

Fans are encouraged to join the Buccaneers in the fight against pediatric cancer by making a donation through the team's fundraising page at www.pcfcutforacure.org.
