MU med students host head shaving event to raise money for research
COLUMBIA — University of Missouri medical students will host a head-shaving event to raise money for the St. Baldricks Foundation.
They are holding the event to not only raise money, but raise awareness of childhood cancer.
According to a news release, a child is diagnosed with cancer every three minutes.
30 students have registered to shave their heads Saturday to support the foundation.
The end goal of the event is to raise $50,000 to donate to childhood cancer research.
The event is from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Logboat Brewery, 504 Fay St.
Anyone can come out to show their support or donate to the cause.
