The National Pediatric Cancer Foundation is hosting their annual Fashion Funds the Cure and Fishing Funds the Cure in St Peterburg. This year’s fashion event will feature live entertainment, the latest fashion designs, light bites and beverages, and both a live and silent auction. Along with the professional models, local pediatric cancer warriors will participate in the "dream walk" where they walk the runway dressed as what they want to be when they grow up and we share their stories. It's adorable! The fishing tournament features a full day of inshore fishing for redfish, snook, and trout. Trophies will be awarded individually to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place for each species and an overall team "slam champion" (boat with highest total length combined.) Both events support critical research needed to find a cure for childhood cancer.

Volunteers can help with:
  • set-up/breakdown
  • registration/silent auction
  • backstage assistance
  • pair with a pediatric cancer kid
  • dock assistance
  • angler shuttles
  • lunch handout

Register to volunteer on our website https://nationalpcf.org/volunteer/ to become a part of a rewarding and unforgettable experience!

Mission Statement

The National Pediatric Cancer Foundation (NPCF) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to funding research to eliminate childhood cancer. Our focus is to fund research to find less toxic, more targeted therapies by partnering with leading hospitals nationwide.

Description

What Makes the NPCF so Different?

A majority of cancer research focuses on adult treatments and is done within the walls of individual institutions. In contrast, we fund clinical trials and COLLABORATE with a network of cutting-edge hospitals across the nation to fast track less-toxic, more targeted treatments. All to increase the survival rate of children battling cancer.

For 30 years and counting, the NPCF has been the one shining light for children who are fighting cancer. We have donated millions of dollars to research and our clinical trials are yielding amazing discoveries that are saving many children’s lives.
