Tampa Restaurants Unite in September for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

In honor of September being Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation’s annual Restaurants for Research campaign is raising funds for pediatric cancer research, supporting local businesses, and uniting some of Tampa’s favorite restaurants.

Local restaurant staples are hosting different promotions to support critical research being conducted by the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation.

The inspiration for Restaurants for Research was ignited from the dreams of pediatric cancer warriors all over the country who aspire to grow up and become chefs, like King.

When you donate to NPCF, you’re funding critical research and scientific advances to find better treatment options through the best doctors and scientists at over thirty leading pediatric cancer institutions in the US. With only 4% of all federal funding for cancer research allocated to childhood cancer projects, NPCF seeks your help to offset this lack of funding.

Restaurants for Research has something for every palate and is the perfect way to support critical pediatric cancer research! If you are unable to visit in person, you can donate online at

The National Pediatric Cancer Foundation (founded in 1991) is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to funding research to eliminate childhood cancer. We govern a unique, collaborative research consortium (called the Sunshine Project) consisting of physicians and scientists from over 30 of the top hospitals in the nation and collaborate to idealize and aggregate the best scientific ideas and fund innovative research. The NPCF has received a perfect 100% score for financial health and transparency and is recognized as the top-rated, 4-star cancer charity in the U.S. by Charity Navigator.
