Students, Staff Shave Heads for Cancer Research

 Students, Staff Shave Heads for Cancer Research

12/03/2013 

Nineteen SUNY Cortland athletic training students and staff members will have their heads shaved in support of the St. Baldrick's Foundation on Saturday, Dec. 7.

A total of 33 volunteers from the club will assist with the event, which takes place between noon and 3 p.m. in Park Center, Room 2213, the back rock climbing gym.

St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity committed to funding childhood cancer research.

The public is invited to attend and support the Student Athletic Trainers’ Association and the St. Baldrick's Foundation as they Shave the Way to Conquer Kids’ Cancer.  For more information or to donate, go to the event's specific web page.

Two of the shaves, athletic training students Amelia Welch and Ashley Crossway, will be donating their hair to Locks of Love, which provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the U.S. and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis.

The Athletic Training Club held a similar St. Baldrick's Foundation event in 2011 and raised more than $4,000.
