Spartanburg, SC (WSPA-TV) – It’s a rock concert to benefit children with cancer and their families.

Docs that Rock happens at the Jerry Richardson indoor stadium at Wofford College March 9 to benefit Children’s Cancer Partners of the Carolinas.

Executive Director Laura Allen said 9 doctors will trade in their medical tools for musical instruments to perform as a part of 7 rock bands.

Allen said the event helps local children, more than 600 served by Children’s Cancer Partners of the Carolinas.

She said some families can’t get life saving treatment close by in Spartanburg County but have to travel long distances in some cases, which can disrupt family life. Allen said they help them afford what they need to be able to live life.

The event is presented by Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System and hosted by the Spartanburg County Medical Society Alliance.
