Each day in the U.S., approximately 43 children are diagnosed with cancer. That’s nearly 16,000 kids each year. Cancer does not discriminate; it affects kids from all backgrounds, ethnicities and socio-economic groups. That’s why Roc Solid’s vision is to one day build hope for 16,000 kids and families every year.
We typically receive referrals from child life specialists and social workers at children’s hospitals, so that’s the best place to start. Please mention our programs to those people first. If you have further questions, you can contact us any time.
Roc Solid is currently partnered with children's hospitals in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and California, but we are rapidly expanding to new areas.
We work very closely with child life specialists and social workers at children's hospitals; they help us determine the best timing for our projects based on treatment plans and other factors. Families complete playset applications, which are submitted to us by our hospital contacts for review. A Roc Solid representative then meets the family (in-person or virtually) to discuss the project, answer questions and add it to our schedule.
We are always looking for extra hands at community events, our major fundraising events, playset projects and (currently in Hampton Roads, VA only) Ready Bag Packing Parties.
If you're interested in volunteering regularly or becoming an RSF Leader, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll put you in touch with the appropriate team member.
First of all, that’s awesome! If you have something in mind, please send an email to email@example.com and we will put you in touch with the person who handles community events in your area.
Impacting 16,000 kids and families a year is a big goal, but one we are determined to reach. So we strive to utilize every dollar possible toward growing and implementing our programs. We plan with the 80/20 rule in mind, meaning around 80% of all donations goes straight toward our mission.
