Roc Solid is a nonprofit organization, based out of Hampton Roads, and has been in operation since 2008. Our primary outreach, “Play It Forward”, focuses on children that have been battling cancer and are currently in remission with their illness. The sponsored child has the opportunity to receive either a playground or a playhouse.
Roc’s Solid’s mission is to provide a place where the child can play and let their imagination grow in a safe environment outdoors. Roc Solid recruits the help of volunteers to help make the playground become a reality for a child battling cancer. The volunteers help in all areas from the preparation of the grounds to the assembly of the play set. All material and labor is provided and the family incurs no cost from the project.
We strive to not only enrich each child’s life, but also their family members. Families affected by cancer face challenges that others cannot always understand. Our hope is to encourage both the child and their family and let them know that they are not alone. The playground offers a small distraction from the illness and shows the family that there are people that truly care what they are going through.
