I am shaving to raise money for childhood cancer research with: Team Harley

Friends and Neighbors, 

On March 27th in the memory of my daughter, Tara, I will be shaving my head again (12th year) to raise money to help find a cure to Childhood cancer through the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.


This year’s shaving is going to be a private event due to COVID 19. Our team name this year is “Team Harley”, In Honor of our team captains’ son.


Tara was diagnosed just over 12 years ago with Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare childhood cancer. Since then, every year I have shaved my head to raise money to stop this horrible disease.


Again, this year I will be listing the names of Businesses that support me.

Did you know, worldwide a child is diagnosed with cancer Every 2 Minutes(1 in 5 will not survive) and that St. Baldrick’s funds more research towards finding a cure for Childhood cancer than any other organization other than the U.S. government? And only 4% of government funding goes towards Childhood cancer research. (Kids don’t vote)


This is a horrible disease that takes too many kids and ruins to many lives. Shaving my head is what I can do to help stop the needless suffering that cancer causes.

I am asking that you please give what you can to help stop this devastating disease. It’s just that easy to help find a cure!


 Tara was a big supporter of St. Baldrick’s and participated when she could. Tara would want the fundraising to find a cure and better treatments to continue.


Thank You,

Mark Penton
