For the last 5 years, One Mission has hosted the Kid’s Cancer Buzz-Off at Gillette Stadium in June, where Buzzees from all over MA (including Cape Cod!) shave their heads to raise money for kid’s cancer. This year, on June 8, the Buzz-Off takes place, with celebrity Buzzee Rob Gronkowski for the fourth year in a row.
Rob Gronkowski to Shave Head at the KID’S CANCER BUZZ-OFF
One Mission’s Fifth Annual Event to Benefit Kids Fighting Cancer
Everyone’s favorite New England tight end, Rob Gronkowski, returns to Gillette Stadium to buzz his head at One Mission’s fifth annual Kid’s Cancer Buzz-Off on June 8. For the last four years, the local nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support for children and families touched by pediatric cancer has welcomed Gronkowski as the featured celebrity to “buzz” his head alongside more than 1,000 other Buzzees in a show of solidarity and support for those courageously fighting cancer. Gronkowski will also be buzzing several lucky (and brave) Buzzees.
“I’m hyped to buzz my dome for the fourth year in a row with One Mission,” says Buzzee Rob Gronkowski. “The Kid’s Cancer Buzz-Off is an inspiring day where everyone stands together and fights the battle against cancer. Gronk Nation always comes up big for One Mission and I know this year will be no different. Be a hero. Make a difference. Get Involved. The time is now!”
The Kid’s Cancer Buzz-Off is One Mission’s largest annual fundraising event, having raised nearly $2 Million for pediatric cancer patients and their families. Proceeds from the Kid’s Cancer Buzz-Off benefit Boston’s Children’s Hospital, The Jimmy Fund at Dana-Farber, and The Family Reach Foundation. One Mission is dedicated to brightening the road to recovery for pediatric cancer patients and their families.
As the largest community supporter of Boston Children’s Hospital, One Mission graciously funds over 70% of the programs and services offered in The One Mission Resource room of the Hospital’s pediatric oncology floor, including hosting therapeutic and fun activities like yoga, arts & crafts, spa days, and game nights. One Mission also provides financial assistance to families with a child battling cancer.
The fifth annual Kid’s Cancer Buzz-Off will take place on Sunday, June 8th 2014 from 9:00 am until 3:30 pm at the Putnam Club Level of Gillette Stadium. For more information and to register, to sponsor a “Buzzee” or team, or to make a donation, please visit www.buzzforkids.org.

About One Mission:
One Mission is a childhood cancer foundation dedicated to enhancing the lives of pediatric cancer patients and their families. The Kid’s Cancer Buzz-Off is One Mission’s largest annual fundraising event, having raised nearly $2 Million for pediatric cancer patients and their families. Proceeds from the Kid’s Cancer Buzz-Off benefit Boston’s Children’s Hospital, The Jimmy Fund at Dana-Farber, and The Family Reach Foundation. As a tax exempt public charitable foundation dedicated to brightening the road to recovery for pediatric cancer patients and their families, One Mission funds patients and family support services that help children and their families cope with the many physical, emotional, and financial challenges associated with this disease. All of the programs One Mission funds directly benefit children and adolescents diagnosed with cancer, the families who support them, and the medical community who compassionately cares for them. One Mission is a section 501 © (3) public charity under the Internal Revenue Code. All donations made to One Mission are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by the Internal Revenue Code. One Mission was founded by One Mission’s President, Ashley Haseotes, and her husband Ari Haseotes, Cumberland Farms Gulf Oil Group President. For more information, please visit: www.buzzforkids.org.
Ashley Haseotis, wife of Cumberland Farms’ CEO Ari Haseotis, was driven to start One Mission, a non-profit that has raised more than $2 million in a few short years (and funds more than 70% of the patient and family services offered on the pediatric oncology floor of Boston Children’s Hospital), after her seven-month-old son, Nicholas, was diagnosed with AML, a rare form of leukemia. The Haseotis’s spent six months living at Children’s Hospital Boston; their lives turned upside down. Thanks to advancements in research, and the compassionate care and expert treatment their son received, today Nicholas is cancer-free. This life-changing experience inspired them to start a foundation that would make life better for children and their families living with cancer and would help put an end to this terrible disease. One Mission is based in Massachusetts and serves the needs of pediatric cancer patients and their families living in the greater New England area.
