Santa Ana USD children to shave their heads to conquer childhood cancers!
Carr Intermediate School
Students and teachers will BRAVE the SHAVE and go BALD during their Fifth Annual St. Baldrick’s Foundation Fundraising event on Tuesday, March 15, 2016 at 8:30 a.m, at Carr Intermediate School, located at 2120 W. Edinger Ave., in Santa Ana.
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation sponsors head-shaving events around the world by asking the simple question: How much money would you donate to conquer kids’ cancers to see me shave my head? Volunteer barbers donate their time and participants raise funds and then sit back and have their heads shaved in solidarity with kids who have been diagnosed with cancer. The money raised goes towards grants given to doctors and scientists who are dedicated to finding cures and treatments for infants, children, and young adults who have been diagnosed with cancer.
This year, Carr is dedicating the event to a former Carr student who is in remission for Ewing Sarcoma and two 8th grade students currently in remission for other childhood cancers.
Participants will receive an “Ask Me Why I’m Bald” button to continue to increase awareness and raise funds after the event as well.
