Congratulations and thank you to Team Will Power for raising nearly $3000 at St. Baldrick’s 2011, which was held on Sunday, April 10 in Albany. The team of eight bravely shaved their locks to support pediatric cancer research (pictures can be seen below).
Nationally, St. Baldrick’s raises over $20 million every year to support and fund research for all forms of pediatric cancer. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government. Since 2000, more than $109 million has been raised for childhood cancer research. From 2000 to 2011, over 184,000 shavees – including over 16,400 women – have shaved their heads at more than 4,100 St. Baldrick’s events worldwide.
Participating on Team Will Power this year were:
- Ben and Max Hladun (Will’s brothers)
- Sam Verdile (Will’s cousin)
- Sean and Jack Walker (Will’s cousins)
- Spencer Patterson
- James Roth
- Don Savage
Thank you to all who were part of Team Will Power and to all those who participated in a St. Baldrick’s Day event across the country. You are truly making a difference.
