The annual St. Baldrick’s Day event at Evanston Township High School raised more than $10,000 this year for childhood cancer research this year. Forty one students and four adults participated in the event held March 16 as part of a national awareness campaign and fundraiser.

Three student organizers, Annie Hedges, Amanda Rudolph and Kyra Wernick served as leaders of the Cause for a Cure Committee of the Community Service Club, recruiting shavees for St. Baldrick’s Day at ETHS.  “This event would not have been possible without their energetic recruitment strategies and the dedication of Marvin Green, our perennial barber,” remarked ETHS Community Service Coordinator Mary Collins.

This year, more teams of students signed up than in previous years, Ms. Collins noted. The top individual fundraiser was ETHS junior Michael Axelrood, who raised $2,710.

The St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a nonprofit organization, created the St. Baldrick’s Day event as an opportunity for volunteers to collect pledges by shaving their heads in solidarity with kids with cancer who typically lose their hair during treatment.
