Tampa Bay Buccaneers go bald for pediatric cancer research

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA, FL (WFLA) - Nearly 40 Tampa Bay Buccaneers players and staff had their heads shaved by pediatric cancer patients on Tuesday as part of a fundraiser.

The event was part of the Pediatric Cancer Foundation's Fifth Annual Bright House Networks Cut for a Cure Charity Challenge. 

Children who previously battled or are currently battling cancer visited One Buc Place armed with clippers to help the Bucs meet their $20,000 goal.

Among those who change their hairstyles:  Gerald McCoy, Michael Johnson, Mike Glennon, Connor Barth, and COO Brian Ford.

So far, the Cut for a Cure has raised nearly $290,000 this year for pediatric cancer research and awareness.
