ST. PETERSBURG – The Tampa Bay Rowdies will help raise funds for childhood cancer during two home matches in September.
As part of National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the Rowdies will donate $2 from every ticket sold for the Sept. 23 and 30 games to the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital pediatric cancer research unit. In addition, the club will donate $1,000 for every Rowdies goal plus $1,000 for a shut-out.
Other fundraising activities will occur before and during the games.
The #GOLDTOGETHER initiative is being done in conjunction with medulloblastoma survivor and honorary Rowdie Cole Eicher to support families, raise research funds and bring awareness to childhood cancer.
Twelve-year-old pediatric cancer survivor Marissa Peddie will sing the national anthem at both matches.
Rowdies fans and the entire community can donate directly to Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital pediatric cancer research unit by visiting www.goldtogether.com.
