Onbikes has been supporting the Tampa community since 2011 by organizing an annual winter bike ride to raise funds to provide at-risk kids with bicycles.
During the 2017 holiday season, the CCC staff was among 1,000 volunteers who met at Amalie Arena to assemble 800 bikes that would be distributed to children in the local community.
Of those 800 bicycles, onbikes gave away 30 bicycles at CCC’s Holiday Party and donated an additional 70 bikes which were distributed to families during our Holiday Adoption Program.
In addition, the CCC staff participated in the 7th Annual Winter Wonder Ride at Curtis Hixon Park, which occurred on December 9th, 2017, and some of the children supported by the CCC were able to ride on the onbikes float during the Gasparilla Kids Parade.
The Children’s Cancer Center is grateful that onbikes is doing their part in restoring the self-confidence, health, and overall well-being of at-risk kids in our community.
The Landon Outreach Foundation and Landon Plastic Surgery have been supporting the Children’s Cancer Center for more than six years!
Landon Outreach Foundation sponsors the CCC Holiday Party every year by providing the venue, decor, activities and games to ensure that so many of our families feel special during the holiday season.
Landon Plastic Surgery was the presenting sponsor for this year’s 5th Annual Wine Women and Shoes event and has been involved with WW&S since its creation.
For almost four decades, the Children’s Cancer Center runs a contest in which kids submit their artwork to be one of five selected holiday card designs. This artwork is used to create the CCC’s signature holiday cards which are sold in more than 100 Publix stores throughout the tri-county area. Our team is grateful for the support of Tampa Printer who professionally prints and packages thousands of cards for this campaign and we appreciate Avatar Packaging’s assistance with manufacturing and donating retail stands for us to use for the past seven years!
Tampa Printer has been an amazing partner throughout the years and also donated a website for the CCCHolidayCards.com campaign for the public to be able to purchase cards online and customize them for sending out to loved ones. Not only has their team supported the CCC in selling our holiday cards, but they’ve supported us year-round by printing signage and marketing collateral for our events and have been a huge supporter of our Gelatin Plunge.
Thank you to the University of Florida Rinker School (BCN) Alumni for hosting the 10th Annual Inshore Fishing Tournament which raised more than $18,000 to support the CCC!
We are grateful for Tampa Bay BCN Gators’ generous contribution and give special thanks to Captain Mike Anderson of the Reel Animals Fishing Team for helping Millie, a fun-loving eight-year-old who is currently battling a brain tumor, catch her first snook.
Thank you to all of the sponsors and participants who came out to Hula Bay on October 22nd to support our children and families. We REELy appreciate it!
Ron Diaz has been supporting the Children’s Cancer Center for almost 20 years and since the start of his involvement, Ron has raised more than $200,000 to help our children and families cope.
This year, he kicked off the 1st Annual Ron Diaz Beach Brigade Paddle Board & Kayak Event which was held on Saturday, September 2nd. Almost 100 paddle boarders launched from The Club at Treasure Island and enjoyed the morning paddling along their choice of a three, five, or seven mile course all while standing up to cancer.
The inaugural event helped raise close to $7,000 for the children and families of the CCC and we are grateful to Ron and his team at 620 WDAE for their continued support!
620 WDAE (Tampa Bays Sports Station and Home of Ron & JP) also hosts a golf tournament every year to help raise money for the programs we offer to support our CCC families. This year, the 17th Annual Ron Diaz Christmas Classic is set to take place Friday, December 8th at Saddlebrook Resort in Wesley Chapel.
Monaco Salon started supporting the Children’s Cancer Center earlier this year and contributed a gift certificate toward the Men’s Locker giveaway at our inaugural Golf Madness event in March.
In May, they provided hair styling at no cost to the families (patient and parent) who attended the CCC VIP Dance sponsored by High Hopes in High Heels.
This September, Monaco Salon was an instrumental part in helping our oncology patients and siblings prepare for going back to school. They hosted an event at their salon in which the CCC kids received free back-to-school haircuts.
Since then, DeeDee has accompanied the CCC Staff to the hospital on several occasions to provide haircuts to children who have been newly diagnosed to help with coping about the sensitive issue of hair loss.
FIRM Consulting Group has been a constant supporter of the Children’s Cancer Center for many years and their entire team has contributed to our organization in various ways, including:
The Splash Like a Mermaid Keller Williams Team (Tampa Properties) participated in the Children’s Cancer Center’s Corporate Challenge to help raise money for the 5th Annual Gelatin Plunge on June 17th. Out of 15 corporate teams competing for the trophy cup, Keller Williams Tampa Properties won by a landslide. Their team collectively raised $10,000 and their office then matched 100% for a grand total donation of $20,000 to support the children and families of the CCC,
Thank you to the KW team for continuing to support our events and for volunteering to help around the Center. Congratulations on being our Gelatin Plunge Corporate Challenge winner and have fun showing off that trophy cup all year!
