Orlando-based Florida Hospital and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers football team teamed up to hold the fourth annual Treasure Chests 5K Run/Walk to benefit breast cancer research and patient services for residents of the area.

Proceeds from the event will be used to support breast cancer patient services in the TampaBay area. Florida Hospital will be one of the beneficiaries of the funds, according to the article.

The race will take place Oct. 29 at the Raymond James Stadium. Participants are also invited to attend back to the stadium the following day to attend the Buccaneers vs. Oakland Raiders football game at 1 p.m.

"We are excited to once again join with our Pewter Partners at FloridaHospital to create awareness and raise much-needed funds for breast cancer research through the Treasure Chests 5K Run/Walk and Corporate Challenge," said Buccaneers COO Brian Ford in a prepared statement. "The Buccaneers are committed to making a difference in our community and teaming up with like-minded partners such as Florida Hospital allows us to have the greatest impact in and around the TampaBay area as we work to bring an end to breast cancer."
