Elizabethtown St. Baldrick's Downtown Shavedown

Saturday, March 11, 2017
Many Local Volunteers Go Bald to Support Childhood Cancer Research
St. Baldrick’s Foundation event to raise money to find the best treatments for kids with cancer Elizabethtown, Kentucky; March 11, 2017 –The St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a volunteer-powered organization dedicated to raising money for children's cancer research, will host one of its signature head-shaving events at The Historic State Theater on March 11, 2017, where more than 100+ will shave their heads in solidarity with kids with cancer and raise money for lifesaving research.  
 
Every 2 minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer; one in five won’t survive, and those who do often suffer long-term effects from treatments too harsh for their developing bodies. Kids are special, and at St. Baldrick’s we treat them that way. From its beginnings, St. Baldrick’s has believed that kids deserve the chance to be kids – fun-loving, carefree, refreshingly honest, and always a little goofy – and deserve the chance at a future. That’s why donations raised at events like this have made it possible for St. Baldrick’s to fund more than $200 million to support the development of childhood cancer treatments that are as unique as every kid.
 
The event will include children’s activities including bouncy houses, a rock wall and face painting. Food truck(s), local vendor participation, St. Patrick’s Day celebrations will also be included along with the grand finale head shave from 4-6PM. This event is in tandem with the already established downtown 2nd Saturday festivities. Many Hardin County children have been DX with childhood cancer. Funding research is the only way towards a cure. “LIKE” the Elizabethtown St. Baldrick’s page for updates and additions to the schedule.
 
About St. Baldrick’s Foundation
As the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation believes that kids are special and deserve to be treated that way. St. Baldrick’s funds are granted to some of the most brilliant childhood cancer research experts in the world and to innovative explorers who bring with them the promise of a future free from childhood cancers. Kids need treatments as unique as they are – and that starts with funding research just for them. Join us at StBaldricks.org to help support the best cancer treatments for kids.
