National Volunteer Week: Meet Ari and Ron

by St. Baldrick's Foundation
April 8, 2019

National Volunteer Week is a special time for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a donor- and volunteer-powered charity.

At St. Baldrick’s, we recognize that, without our many determined volunteers, we could never fund lifesaving research and clinical trials to help save kids’ lives.
