Rowers Go Bald for Childhood Cancer

Athletes from the OKC National High Performance Center, Ryan Monaghan and Phil Grisdela had their heads shaved on Sunday to stand in solidarity with kids fighting cancer and to raise money to find cures with the St. Baldrick's Foundation. 

St. Baldrick’s head-shaving events began as a challenge between businessmen and have grown from one event in 2000 to over 1,300 events in 2012, raising critical funds for childhood cancer research. Events take place in pubs, restaurants, schools, churches, parks, malls, military bases, firehouses and any other place you can imagine.

Because kids with cancer often lose their hair during treatment, "shavees" for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation show their support by shaving their heads voluntarily, and inspiring friends and family to donate money to support childhood cancer research.
