ROC SOLID FOUNDATION INC Overview
Profile ( less )
Geographic areas served: Roc Solid Foundation currently serves Virginia, Maryland, D.C., North Carolina and Tennessee.
Programs: Roc Solid’s flagship program, Play It Forward, has constructed dozens of custom playsets for children battling cancer throughout the country. During each project, the children and their families are taken out by limo for the morning, and when they return home, they are surprised with brand new wooden playsets in their backyards. While the concept is simple, its impact is far-reaching and immensely rewarding.
Launched in 2012, the Roc Solid Ready Bag is given to parents who have recently learned that their child has cancer and will be undergoing a long series of treatments. The bag contains everything the family might need during an unexpected hospital stay, which often happens immediately after diagnoses, including a blanket, toiletries, pens, journals, coloring books, a preloaded debit card, quarters for the vending machines and an Amazon Kindle Fire.
Re: Mission | Remodel is an extension of Play It Forward program, designed for pediatric cancer patients between the ages of nine and 18 or those whose living situation prevents Roc Solid from being able to build a playset (i.e. they live in an apartment or condo).
Every kid's asked, "what do you want to be when you grow up?" Our When I Grow Up program lets children stricken with pediatric cancer fulfill those aspirations by pairing with a real life professional that shows them the ropes of their "dream job." From firefighters, to fashion designers; physical therapists to archeologists, we do all we can to inspire the courage to keep fighting. Because after all, growing up– means getting better.
