Atlanta is helping conquer kids’ cancer
Since 2004, the Atlanta area has embraced St. Baldrick’s head-shaving events as part of their annual St. Patrick’s Day tradition, raising more than $7.9 million for childhood cancer research!
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation has granted over $326 million to support the most promising research, making it the largest charity funder of childhood cancer research grants in the U.S. and around the world. Many of these grants fund research in Atlanta and surrounding areas in Georgia including Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Emory University, and other local institutions. These grants help give more kids access to clinical trials, which are often their best hope for a cure, train the next generation of pediatric oncologists, and fund specific research projects that help kids with cancer.
