Country Music

Inspires Cures


Roswell Park Cancer Institute and Buffalo’s signature country music station WYRK-FM 106.5 join forces to raise awareness about the importance of cancer research in our quest to cure the disease.

See what's planned for 2014!

Through the music of our favorite bands, the Country Music Inspires Cures campaign unites our community in the effort to fund research that makes a meaningful impact on patients’ lives. Artists from all walks of country performing in our town join the fight to raise thousands of dollars and win countless hearts—lending their star power to the cause, sending inspirational messages, sharing their own family’s experiences with cancer and giving special performances to RPCI patients.

Not only are we huge fans of country music and artists, we’re also a proud sponsor of Buffalo’s premier concert, Taste of Country. This year’s event will pay special tribute to those at the very heart of our work against cancer—our survivors. These brave folks are invited to attend Taste of Country and enjoy honorary seating in a special section of Coca-Cola Field. Tune into WYRK 106.5 for more details.
