The Fifth Annual Tampa Bay Cut for a Cure Charity Challenge was held April 9 to show support for childhood cancer patients, and to raise both awareness and funds for the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. The event brought out hundreds of people, from students, to teachers, to Tampa Bay Rays players, doctors, lawyers and dozens of Tampa Bay business leaders.
duPont REGISTRY’s Publisher Tom duPont and Steven Chapman, Jr., as well as duPont’s grandsons, Tommy and Tyler Thiel, turned out in support of the event, volunteering to go under the clippers as well. They participated in support of Quantum Leap Farms, and you, too, can join in their efforts to reach a sizeable fundraising goal before the May 3 deadline.
The team put together by Quantum Leap Farm had 27 members with 2-legs, and a few four legged friends; the team brought a horse to participate as well. As their website describes, Quantum Leap Farm “[understands] how this disease affects more people than those diagnosed. Through therapeutic horseback riding and other equine-assisted therapies, we help whole families battling cancer to stay connected, so together they may grow strong, achieve goals and overcome challenges by engaging with horses.”
As the shavees took the stage and sat down, survivors and current pediatric cancer patients stood behind the chairs, tightened the aprons and, with the assistance of hair professionals from Sport Clips Haircuts, took a buzzer to the heads in front of them.
Just one of many events held to support the Pediatric Cancer Foundation, the Fifth Annual Tampa Bay Cut for a Cure Charity Challenge is part of an ongoing fundraising campaign. Team Quantum Leap has raised $7,326 of its $15,000 goal. As of today, the campaign had reached $215,336, almost half of the total fundraising goal.
