Shave Heads for a Cause

Dear School Community,

As you may be aware, St. Baldrick's Foundation is a non-profit organization that funds research to find cures for childhood cancers. Each year, they organize events where individuals volunteer to shave their heads in solidarity with children who lose their hair during cancer treatment and, at the same time, raise funds for critical research.

Three years ago, Tracy Keilty, myself, and two other employees shaved our heads and raised over $17,000, and we would like to see if we could raise $20,000! Several years ago, Goshen Center School lost an amazing young man to cancer, and we would like once again to raise funds in his name. There have been other students, across four towns, over the past 5-7 years that have been diagnosed - our fight continues. 

We are requesting your support in organizing a St. Baldrick's event for soon-to-be Region 20.  We believe involving our school community in this initiative can make a meaningful impact in fundraising and spreading awareness about childhood cancer.

Here's a brief overview of the event:

We believe that our collective efforts can make a significant difference in the lives of children affected by cancer. Participating in a St. Baldrick's event can show solidarity with them and contribute to the ongoing efforts to find cures.

 Thank you for considering this meaningful and impactful initiative.
