Shaving Heads Raises $3,500 for Childhood Cancer Research

Posted: Updated:

Losing hair to raise a whole lot of money.

Four people, including one child, got their heads shaved Sunday at Power Play Sports in Watertown as part of a fundraiser for St. Baldrick's Foundation.

St. Baldrick's helps raise awareness and research for childhood cancer.

Organizers with the local fundraiser said it's an important cause to be a part of.

"We train a lot of kids here and they come and practice," said Anthony Netto, owner of Power Play Sports. "Anything we can do to help out the next generation is what we're trying to do."

"I was honored and it really makes you think," said Paul Trimper, who had his head shaved in Fundraiser and is a co-owner Power Play Sports. "Everybody's life has been touched by cancer one way or another and children, they really don't deserve that."

The event raised about $3,500.
