Heads Being Shaved To Fight Pediatric Cancer

Posted by wlpo on March 11, 2010

There’s going to be plenty of hair lost this Saturday in Ottawa.

The 7th annual St. Baldrick’s Day Fundraiser starts at ten Saturday morning at Jeremiah Joe Coffee in downtown Ottawa.  Over eleven thousand dollars has been raised online for the event and 184 people have agreed to shave their heads in supporting the fight against childhood cancer.  Some of the shavees will be from the Ottawa Police Department, Marseilles Fire Department and Deer Park School District.

The fundraising goal for the Ottawa event is 47 thousand dollars.  WLPO’s Chalktalk will broadcast live from Jeremiah Joe’s starting at nine with 96-5 the Wolf’s Cowboy broadcasting live starting at 11.
