About Pirate Day Friday

Pirate Day Friday is an annual national day of dressing to raise awareness and much-needed funds for childhood brain cancer. Funds raised on the day are allocated to scientific studies to find better treatments and ultimately a cure for the disease through the The Adventurers and The Kids’ Cancer Project.
