Rockford University’s Jane Addams Center for Civic Engagement is hosting Rockford Goes Bald: Head Shaving Event for St. Baldrick’s on Weds., February 27 in Regents Hall, Student Burpee Center from 5:00- 7:30 pm. T-Mobile is an official sponsor for this event. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-powered charity that funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization, with the exception of the U.S. government.
There are currently 15 people signed up to participate in the event, of which 10 will be shaving their heads to help raise awareness and donate to the cause. These participants include Alex Johnson (Director of Student Involvement and Orientation at Rockford University), James Orourke (T Mobile representative), Sergio Herrera (AmeriCorps VISTA at Rockford University and Rockford Goes Bald event organizer), as well as several other students and staff members. The commitment of these individuals to shave for this event raises more than just funds and awareness, it also shows kids who lost their hair during their cancer treatment that you support them.
Rockford Goes Bald begins at 5 pm on Rockford University’s campus, located at 5050 East State Street, Rockford. To learn more about Rockford Goes Bald and the St. Baldrick’s Foundation or to donate visit www.stbaldricks.org/events/rockfordgoesbald, donations are now being accepted.
