Davenport residents go bald for cancer research.
People in Davenport are going bald for cancer research.
In addition to raising awareness, the foundation’s goal was to raise $75,000. Almost 100 participants registered to shave their heads to support the mission.
This was the third year in a row that the Quad City St. Baldrick’s held the event to “Conquer Kids’ Cancer,” an event that has raised in total over $120,000 for the foundation.
The event featured raffles, auctions, food and drink, live entertainment, and activities for kids.
According to a spokesperson from the foundation, every three minutes worldwide a child is diagnosed with cancer. St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-driven and donor-centered charity dedicated to raising money for childhood cancer research.
