The St. Baldrick’s Foundation started in 2000 with 20 people who shaved their head at a single event to raise funds to benefit research into childhood cancers. Last year, more than 56,000 people participated at about 1,300 events staged in several different counties. They raised $33.5 million – 82 percent of which went back out the door in the form of grants to support childhood cancer research. This year’s goal is $37 million.
