St. Baldrick’s – Going Bald for a Good Cause: Helping Fight Childhood Cancer! @StBaldricks

25 Mar

Last Friday, March 19th, 2011, approximately 25 students, dads, and teachers “went bald” for kids’ cancer at Aiken Elementary School, a part of the Keystone Oaks School District. The school’s goal was to raise $1,000 for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation – and they ended up raising over $7,000!

Each “shavee” got friends, family, and strangers to donate and “sponsor” them as they had their heads shaved bald for this worthy cause.

Enjoy some photos from the event, below!
