RITA, Research Is The Answer

RITA, Research Is The Answer, continues to fund local breast cancer research, education, awareness and patient programs. Special events, like the RITA Championships, generate our revenue. We then donate 100% of those net proceeds to several Jacksonville breast cancer programs. 

Since beginning in 1997, The RITA ( Research Is The Answer ) Foundation has donated over $ 4,600,000.00 to local cancer programs.  

Our major recipients are UF Health, over $ 1,500.000.00, Mayo Clinic, over $ 1,000,000.00 and Baptist Health, over $ 1,000,000.00.

In addition, we have established Cancer Research Endowments at Mayo Clinic and Baptist Health.RITA is the largest contributor to the Baptist Cancer Institute with over $750,000 donated.

Proceeds have helped purchase state of the art mammography equipment at Shands Jacksonville. Mayo Clinic has used RITA grants to fund basic cancer research program. Breast cancer survivors have been helped by grants to the Bosom Buddies support Group at the Women’s Center of Jacksonville.

The ‘Best Benefit of All’ is that all of, The RITA Foundation, the local Breast Cancer programs ... are making progress in finding a cure. Thank you for participating and helping RITA help all the women of Jacksonville.

Whether you participate in this year’s Tournament or not, please consider making a contribution of at least $20.

We could raise an additional $20,000 if all non-participating players did just that!
