Thanks to all participants in the capital region of New York who did their part to fight Childhood Cancer. Albany Medical Center’s event at Westmere Fire Department in Guilderland, New York raised ~$94,000 on 3/15/15 for St. Baldrick’s. Visit the website below to see participants.
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation raises money and awareness to fund childhood cancer research in a quest to conquer childhood cancer. Participants volunteer to shave their heads to raise funds and stand in solidarity with those battling cancer. Every 3 minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer. Funding research to develop better, less toxic treatments is the primary focus of this wonderful organization. Over 155 million dollars in research grant funding has been sponsored through St. Baldrick’s since 2000.
Thank you to all who participated and/or donated to make the Westmere Event so successful!
