Freeman, Williams and Others Joining Dominik in Shaving Head for Cancer Research

Tampa Bay Buccaneers General Manager Mark Dominik might feel a little strange on Friday afternoon after he has his head shaved to support the Pediatric Cancer Foundation’s Fourth Annual Bright House Networks Cut for a Cure Charity Challenge.

What he won’t feel is lonely.

See, Dominik won’t be the only one sporting a newly shiny dome at One Buccaneer Place on Friday.  Joining him in this most worthy of causes – and in this most public of statements – will be more than a dozen current Buccaneer players, including quarterback Josh Freeman, wide receiver Mike Williams, linebacker Mason Foster, kicker Connor Barth and punter Michael Koenen.

The mass depilation will take place at 11:45 a.m. ET on Friday at the Buccaneers’ headquarters, with an appreciative audience of children who have previously battled or are currently battling cancer.  The Buccaneers’ goal in the Cut for a Cure Challenge is to raise $20,000 that will be put to use in medical research, programming and care for children and their families battling pediatric cancer and blood disorders.

Here is the entire list of Bucs who will be adopting the clean-shaven look up top on Friday:

  • General Manager Mark Dominik
  • K Connor Barth
  • S Ahmad Black
  • LB Jonathan Casillas
  • LS Andrew Economos
  • LB Mason Foster
  • QB Josh Freeman
  • LB Ka’lial Glaud
  • S Cody Grimm
  • P Michael Koenen
  • QB Dan Orlovsky
  • T Mike Remmers
  • OL Cody Wallace
  • WR Mike Williams

The Buccaneers have long supported the efforts of the Pediatric Cancer Foundation, often led by Dominik, who is a member of the Foundation’s board.  For instance, Buccaneers serve each year as celebrity runway escorts for young girls battling cancer at the annual Fashion Funds the Cure fashion show.  In the fall of 2012, the Buccaneers hosted children and families affected by pediatric cancer to kick off National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month by dedicating a “Wall of Hope” at One Buccaneer Place, which was displayed throughout September of 2012 as a daily reminder of the Buccaneers’ commitment to pediatric cancer research.  And for the past five years, Economos has sponsored the Johnny Ferlita Memorial Fishing Tournament to raise funds and awareness for the Pediatric Cancer Foundation.
