St. Baldrick's Foundation head-shaving event in Victor raise funds and awareness for lifesaving childhood cancer.
Finn’s Tap Room and Party House will host a St. Baldrick’s Foundation head-shaving event to raise funds and awareness for lifesaving childhood cancer research. The 'Shave for the Brave' fundraiser will begin at 1 p.m. on Sunday, with head-shaving to start at 1:15 p.m. at Finn’s Tap Room and Party House, 14 Railroad St., Victor.
“With a goal of raising $45,000, 81 local volunteers will go bald to support the Foundation’s mission to take childhood back from cancer,” according to the foundation.
“One in five children diagnosed with cancer will not survive. Those who do survive often suffer long-term effects from treatment too harsh for their developing bodies. As the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants, St. Baldrick’s Foundation is leading the charge to take childhood back from cancer. Donations raised at events like this support the development of childhood cancer treatments that give kids their best chance at growing up cancer free.”
Local pediatric oncology nurse, Lynne Stiefler, has been volunteering with St. Baldrick’s since 2006. Being a nurse, she has seen the toll cancer takes on kids and families of those diagnosed. Lynne has continuously volunteered to organize and shave at various St. Baldrick’s events to help find cures and better treatments for all childhood cancers.
