SLU Students Shave Heads To Support Children's Cancer Research

Tools

Hair styles on college campuses can generate a number of interesting do's.

But after this weekend, there may just be a number of shaved heads walking around campus.

St. Lawrence University students are planning to show their support for children's cancer research this weekend by having their heads shaved.

The haircutting will take place Saturday in the Winston Room of the University Student Center.

Pre-Health Club President Ally Baier says proceeds raised through pledges of those being shaved will benefit the St. Baldrick's Foundation, an organization dedicated to funding research toward finding cures for childhood cancer.

This marks the fourth year SLU has held the "Clips for Cancer" haircutting.

"People decide to become "shavees," which means they're going to shave their heads and the purpose is to stand in solidarity with those children fighting childhood cancer," said Baier.

Clips for Cancer will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m on Saturday.
