Campus Champion

Sophomore Chelsee Brockwell accomplished a long-time goal in March when she organized a St. Baldrick’s Foundation event at SUNY Cortland and raised more than $1,600 for childhood cancer research. The Oswego native was inspired by Sadie, a two-year-old from her hometown with leukemia. St. Baldrick’s is home of the head-shaving event, an easy and fun way to raise money for a serious cause. More than 20 inches of Chelsee’s hair was donated and the Cortland Dance Company vice president’s experience is beautifully communicated in this poignant video, filmed by senior Sarra Snider.
