72 High School Students Shave Their Heads To Cure Childhood Cancer
Long hair may be a trend that's in these days, but 72 newly-trimmed students and teachers are bringing bald back. The group of volunteers from Wilton High School in suburban Connecticut decided to shave their heads as part of a fundraising event for the St. Baldrick's Foundation. Since 2000, this California-based volunteer charity has raised $34 million through these events to fund promising research in order to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives. After collecting donations that added up to the hefty sum of $15,000, piles of hair filled the floor from this group of St. Baldrick's "shavees."
