Shave your head and be a hero for kids with cancer.
Savannah is gearing up for the 9th annual St. Baldrick's Day celebration.
Last year the St. Baldrick's Foundation raised almost $40,000 to support research for childhood cancer.
Several brave doctors from Memorial University Medical Center lined up Wednesday morning to go ahead and have their heads shaved to show their support for the cause.
The St. Baldrick's
Foundation is ready to celebrate their ninth annual event in City Market. It
doesn't start until Saturday, but some
people just couldn't wait.
It's a hair cut that can save a life. St. Baldrick's Day
is back and better than ever this year. More than 60 people plan to head
downtown to get rid of their locks and help raise money for childhood cancer
The event has been a
success for the foundation and an even bigger hit for these pediatricians at Memorial
Health who helped kick things off early by having their heads shaved on Wednesday.
The event isn't just for the
guys. Just ask Dr. Yael Elfassy. She has shaved her head for the last three
"We have women
with long hair short hair. They shave their heads it looks amazing when they do
it. it's incredible to see how beautiful you are. Bald is really beautiful,"
They're still accepting participants St. Baldrick's Day action.
Be a part of the fund-raiser Saturday by heading down to City Market, 219 W Bryan Street. The event kicks off at noon and will run until 5 p.m.
