Baldricks is Coming
Under two months away!
- We're two months away from the annual St. Baldrick's event, it's time to get signed up if you haven't already. For those who don't know St. Baldrick's is an event where volunteers agree to shave their heads in solidarity with the kids who lose their hair in chemo and other treatments, while seeking pledges from friends and family to raise funds to help find a cure for this terrible disease.
For the last seven years hundreds of members of the Chicago Police Department have gotten together to fight this terrible disease that affects way too many of us. The St. Baldricks Foundation is the largest funder of childhood cancer research grants, second only to the U.S. government. Grants of over 178 Million dollars in childhood cancer research have contributed to hundreds of childhood cancer research products, training the next generation of researchers, and helping institutions treat more children in clinical trials including many right here in Chicago.
This year, after the request of several past attendees, we have moved the event to a Saturday. This will allow more friends and families to come down and parking and traffic will not be an issue. The event will be at the Academy, 1300 W. Jackson on Saturday, March 12th from 0700 – 1700 hours.
