St. Baldrick's Update
Once again, the St. Baldrick's Organization has requested the assistance of the men and women of the Chicago Police Department in 2010. For those unfamiliar, St. Baldrick's is an organization that raises money that goes towards research of a cure for childhood cancer. Participants agree to shave their heads in support of the kids who lose there hair in chemo treatments, and seek pledges for doing so. Participants with longer hair are also able to donate hair longer than 12" to be used by "Locks of Love" to make wigs for the patients that do lose their hair.
This year's event will be held on Friday, March 19, 2010 from 7:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. at the Training Academy, Area 2, and Area 5 and we hope to surpass last year's total of over $96,000.00 raised to help fight this horrible disease that has impacted so many of us.
Please go to www.stbaldricks.org and under "find an event" type in Chicago Police in the venue box and choose your location. If you are returning from last year, simply use your login information and click on register for 2010’s event.
