What would you look like bald? Like a HERO to kids with cancer!
Over 300 men and women are expected to shave their heads bald to show solidarity to children with cancer and to raise money for childhood cancer research on Thursday, March 13th, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. at Rí Rá Irish Pub, 1080 Peachtree Street (corner of 12th and Crescent) in Midtown Atlanta. Among these “shavees” will be several members of the commu- nity, the staffs at Rí Rá Irish Pub and American Haircuts, as well as members of the Georgia Tech fraternities.
Those shaving their heads will be enthusiastically cheered on by crowds of friends, family, doctors, nurses, children and others who have been touched by cancer to further awareness to the fact that pediatric cancer, the #1 disease killer of children, is terribly under-funded.
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation raises money and awareness globally for childhood cancer research through volunteer- driven events that pair great fun with this worthy cause. At these events, participants shave their heads in front of cheering supporters to experience themselves one of the most stigmatizing public aspects of cancer- losing one’s hair from chemo- therapy treatment.
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation head shaving event at Rí Rá Irish Pub has been organized by Rí Rá Irish Pub and American Haircuts. Since 2010 over 1,000 men and women shaved their heads and raised over $500,000 the St. Baldrick’s Founda- tion. This year, we hope to have 300 shavees to raise over $175,000. Official barbers for the event will be staff members of American Haircuts, a local company with two locations in metro Atlanta.
