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.
Roc Solid is currently partnered with children’s hospitals in Virginia (Hampton Roads & Richmond), North Carolina (Charlotte, Raleigh Durham & Winston-Salem), South Carolina (Greenville & Myrtle Beach/Charleston). Families in those areas can get more information about our Play It Forward playset program from their child life specialists or social workers at their children’s hospitals.
Roc Solid On Demand provides playsets to families fighting pediatric cancer everywhere else. Click here for more information.

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 go straight toward our mission.
