Playsets

Roc Solid provides custom backyard playsets to kids fighting cancer through our Play It Forward and Roc Solid On Demand programs. We’re proud to have completed thousands of these playset projects throughout the U.S., and we’re just getting started.


Why Playsets?

When a child is diagnosed with cancer, the first thing taken away is the opportunity to play.

Normal family activities are replaced with doctor’s appointments and treatments that leave kids with weak immune systems – and often the inability to interact in public. A new backyard playset not only provides a safe, germ-free place to play, but it also gives the child and family an escape from the reality of fighting cancer and a way to create happy memories together.

Play it Forward

Roc Solid’s Play It Forward program invites sponsor groups to build custom playsets in the backyards of kids fighting cancer.

Led by Roc Solid build leaders, these are organized team-building events inviting sponsor groups to come together for a morning of volunteering. The playset is built in just a few hours, followed by a reveal to the family. Play It Forward program is offered throughout Virginia and North Carolina… and we occasionally travel throughout the U.S., too!

Roc Solid on Demand

Roc Solid On Demand (or “ROD”) brings play to kids fighting cancer even if they live outside our main regions.

We package and ship the entire Roc Solid playset experience, including all the resources to make it a wonderful build day.

If your child is fighting cancer, we encourage you to find a HOST for your playset project. This could be a friend, an extended family member or a local group (church, school, civic group, etc.). Think about who’s been asking “What can I do to help?”

If you are an individual or group interested in HOSTing a ROD playset project for a local family, let us know and we’ll provide you with everything you need. We’ve simplified the process so that anyone can do it.
