Women To Shave Their Heads to Support Kids With Cancer

SCHENECTADY --  On  Saturday at least 6 local women will join over 100 others to shave their hair off to show solidarity with children with cancer, and raise money for childhood Cancer at the 2nd Annual St. Baldrick's Foundation Fundraiser at Proctors.

At the Top of Each Hour One of These Women Will Shave Her Head To Show Solidarity With Kids Fighting Cancer from 12:00-5:00PM. Donations raised will go toward life-saving childhood cancer research, which affects numerous children throughout the Capital Region each year. Over 100 people, men, boys, girls and women, have already signed up to shave their heads, already raising over $28,000 in donations toward this year's event goal of $35,000 goal.

Event organizers Mike and Stacy DeBritz were inspired to spearhead the event in Schenectady County after being introduced to St. Baldrick's Foundation when their own daughter was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer at the age of 10. "Our daughter is now 15 and cancer-free, thanks to the treatment she received and the wonderful people put in our path. We are so excited and very grateful for the overwhelming support from the community, and those, like these women, men and children brave enough to shave their heads to conquer childhood cancer" said Stacy DeBritz.
