Buzz Off Event at Gillete Stadium Raises Money for Childhood Cancer Programs – NBC Boston
The annual “Buzz Off” event supporting pediatric cancer treatments took place Sunday at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
Hundreds of people were joined by New England Patriots special guest linebacker Matthew Judon for the 13e Annual Buzz Off event to create buzz around pediatric cancer and raise funds for the charity One Mission.
The annual Buzz Off event was launched in 2009 to support One Mission, an organization that raises funds and supports the treatment journey of children with childhood cancer, from diagnosis through the treatment process. Since then, the organization has raised over $14.6 million and supported over 37,000 cancer patients.
“One Mission does whatever it takes for children battling cancer,” said Ashley Haseotes, Founder of One Mission. “Our goal is to transform the experience of cancer treatment from a nightmare into a journey filled with moments of joy and friendship.
Funds raised from the event will support One Mission programming at local hospitals like Boston Children’s Hospital, the Jimmy Fund Clinic at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and the Tomorrow Fund Clinic at Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island.
