BENEFITING: ROC SOLID FOUNDATION INC
The Roc Solid Foundation is an organization that provides hope and support to those affected by pediatric cancer. Their mission is to provide opportunities for children and families to engage in the simple joys of childhood despite their conditions. Founder Eric Newman overcame liver cancer as a child, but had family members who lost their battle to cancer at a young age. At the age of 25, Eric initiated the efforts that has now resulted in the Roc Solid Foundation today. Their flagship program, Play It Forward, provides support and encouragement to children and teens with cancer through the construction of custom playsets, room remodels, and iPads for teens. Roc Solid Foundation’s When I Grow Up program engages the community by giving kids the opportunity to shadow real-life professionals for the day. We are raising awareness and funds to support Roc Solid Foundation, so that they can continue to provide hope and courage to children as they battle cancer.
