St. Agnes Parish Center 2019

It's the 20th year of St Baldrick's and the 17th year of the St Agnes Parish Center Event. Be Be a hero for kids with cancer! Help us find cures for all childhood cancers so every child can survive and live long, healthy lives. 

 Join the Rockville Centre St. Baldrick's event, and whether you decide to shave your head, chop your ponytail, volunteer, march with us, spread the word or donate, we hope you'll be a part of the effort to save young lives! Worldwide a child is diagnosed with cancer every 2 minutes. Before they turn 20 about 1 in every 285 children in the US will have cancer. Only 4% of US government cancer research funding is allocated specifically to childhood cancer research. Be a part of the hope and quest to find cures for all childhood cancers. 

The St. Baldrick's Foundation is a volunteer-powered charity that funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government. Money raised goes to funds the most-promising, life-saving research and treatments for all childhood cancers--in local Long Island and NY hospitals and cancer centers and in centers around the world. Please visit the St Baldrick's Foundation website and Facebook page for details on impact, grants, research, honored kids and much more info. Your dollars are making an impact in funding the clinical trials and life-saving treatments. Now in it's 20th year, to date, St Baldrick's has now raised over $255 million, provided research grants to over 373 institutions in 29 countries--all started by just 3 local individuals, including RVC resident, John Bender. Every individual, every donation, every bit of help can make a difference. We will keep holding this annual event until all children can be saved and best treatments are found.
