The greater Romeo community is preparing to host South East Michigan’s 8th annual Premiere St. Baldrick’s event on march 14, 2015. There are a lot of great events across the state of Michigan and around the world, but this has grown to one of the largest in the Country. Over the last 8 years, we have shaved 2,315 heads from more than 80 communities across Southeast Michigan and raised more than 1,402,850. With a few hundred heads from across the state and beyond. It is truly a special and unique event.

For the last two years, more than 500 heroes have headed into the Village of Romeo, raising the bar to over $320k a year, pushing us into the top 10 events worldwide, out of more than 1300.

We need your help to make 2015 even bigger. our goal is to shave over 600 heads and push past the $350,000 mark. Sign up to shave or make a donation or just spread the word, but please do something.

We are making a huge difference in the lives of children worldwide. Every 3 minutes, a child is diagnosed with cancer, this is something no parent should have to hear. The very least we can do is to build hope through funding new childhood specific cancer research. Each year brings new treatments, new cures and a chance for more children to conquer cancer.

Shockingly, the vast majority of cancer research does not focus on childhood cancers, because it is simply not profitable. Again, shocking that this is a determining factor why less than 4% of federal funding is focused on childhood specific research to offset that.

That is where we come in. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is entirely focused on funding new childhood specific research, providing more than $152 million in grants since 2005. We are now the largest source of funds outside of the federal government.

Our event is entirely volunteer driven and every dollar of your donation goes right to the foundation to fund grants. But it does take an army of volunteers to pull this off and We Need You! Join the fight against kids cancer, this is a war we can not afford to lose. Your part in the fight could be as simple as shaving your head in solidarity with kids who lose their hair during cancer treatment. Or pulling out your credit card right now and making a donation.

Make a statement that we will not stand by and let our children suffer. Every child deserves to live along and healthy life, and you can make that happen.

Be the hero.

Regards,
Michael Fiscus
