Firespring Seaks Heroes to Raise Funds for Childhood Cancer

June 07, 2010 // Franchising.com // The St. Baldrick's Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising money for childhood cancer research, has issued a lofty challenge to everyone who wants to help raise money for childhood cancer research: Be a hero for kids with cancer by shaving your head in return for pledges of financial support from friends and family.

Participants find that shaving their head in solidarity with the 160,000 children who are diagnosed with cancer each year is a small sacrifice in comparison to what these children endure, and want to raise money to help find a cure for children with cancer now and in the future.

The event will be held on July 8 at Red 9, 322 S. 9th St. The head-shavings will commence at 6:30 pm. If you would like to shave your head, volunteer or donate visit www.stbaldricks.org/events/red9.

The event is sponsored by Firespring, Red 9, sweet jane a salon.
