Firefighters Shave Heads for Cancer Research - March 5, 2008
San Francisco Firefighters Shave their Heads
to Raise Money for Childhood Cancer Research
Children's Hospital Oakland Monday, March 17, 2008
747 52nd Street 5 PM to 8 PM
Several San Francisco Firefighters will be participating in a nationwide head-shaving event, through the St. Baldrick's Foundation, to show their solidarity with children who have lost their hair from the side effects of cancer treatment.
Since its inception in 2000, St. Baldrick's Foundation has raised more than $34 million to support childhood cancer research! Despite tremendous progress, cancer remains the #1 disease-killer of children in the U.S. and Canada. Approximately 160,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year.
Every year, thousands of men and women give up their locks to raise money for childhood cancer research. This year, San Francisco Firefighters invite all San Franciscans to join our head-shaving Team and help us fight childhood cancer.
