Dozens go bald for cancer research

Dozens of people came out bald after an afternoon at Modern Woodmen Park.

St. Baldrick’s Foundation held a head-shaving event Saturday, April 26, 2014 to raise money and awareness for childhood cancer research. Roughly 80 people came to show their support, and get an extreme haircut.

After having his head shaved, volunteer Chad White said it felt different, but was worth it.

“It feels cold,” White said. “It feels different but it feels good seeing some people here that are actually affected by it immediately and seeing what the organization means to them is a pretty heart-warming thing.”

Saturday was the fourth time the head-shaving event has been held at Modern Woodmen Park. In three years, the nearly $200,000 has been raised for the foundation from these events.
