St. Baldrick’s Foundation event to raise money to find the best treatments for kids with cancer
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation, the largest private funder of children’s cancer research, will host one of its signature head-shaving events at Thompson Library Patio by the Oval – Venue Pending
181 Oval Dr S, Columbus, Ohio on March 23, 2018 where more than 22 shavees will shave their heads to raise money for lifesaving childhood cancer research.
Every 2 minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer worldwide, and in the U.S. one in five kids diagnosed won’t survive. Those who do survive often suffer long-term effects from treatments too harsh for their developing bodies. As the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants, St. Baldrick’s is leading the charge to take childhood back from cancer. From its beginnings, St. Baldrick’s has believed that kids deserve the chance to be kids – fun-loving, carefree, refreshingly honest, and always a little goofy – and deserve the chance at a healthy future. That’s why donations raised at events like this have made it possible for St. Baldrick’s to fund more than $232 million to support the best childhood cancer research, wherever it takes place.
The Ohio State University Head Shaving Event will include Springfield resident, Laura Perenic, who has to date raised over $2,000 for St.Baldricks.
