St. Baldrick's Head Shaving in Roseville March 2
The Keaton Raphael Memorial presents 11th Annual St. Baldrick's Foundation Head Shaving Celebrations, designed to raise funds to support childhood cancer research by recruiting "Heroes" to shave their heads in front of thousands live in return for pledges of financial support from friends and family members. This year's celebrations are scheduled to take place in Roseville, Sacramento, and Davis.
Why all the shaved heads?
- Worldwide a child is diagnosed with cancer every three minutes, and one in five children diagnosed in the U.S. will not survive.
- In the U.S., more children die of childhood cancer than any other disease-more than aids, asthma, cystic fibrosis, congenital anomalies and diabetes combined.
- Only 4 percent of all federal cancer research funding is dedicated to pediatric cancer research.
- St. Baldrick's Foundation volunteers, supporters and donors are needed to continue the battle against this devastating disease.
As one of the top 5 St. Baldrick's campaigns nationwide, The Keaton Raphael Memorial events brought in over $889,000 during the 2012 shave extravaganza's and shaved almost 1,000 heads with a total of over 4 million dollars raised since KRM's first event in 2003. All proceeds go to Childhood Cancer research and could not be raised without the support of the community sponsors and volunteers coming together to help shave away childhood cancer!
The event takes place Saturday March 2nd at Westfield Galleria in Roseville from 12pm-4pm, Monday March 11th at deVere's Irish Pub in Sacramento from 4pm-8pm, Wednesday March 13th at deVere's Irish Pub in Davis from 5pm-8pm
