Medford Elementary Community Shaves Heads To Fight Cancer

Around $8,737 have been raised thus far.

Around 45 Medford Elementary students, teachers and community members shaved their heads to fight cancer at a recent St. Baldrick's night at the school.

Including volunteers and barbers, over 60 people helped out at the event, which has so far raised $8,732.

Donations can still be made to their fundraising website by clicking here, as the group has set a $10,000 goal. They are currently at 87.3 percent of the way there.

Dr. Johnson Liu, from the Feinstein Institute in Manhasset, who receives funding from St. Baldrick’s, spoke about his research (pre-Leukemia) at the event.

With the donations that are currently being processed or are in the mail, the total raised should be just over $10,000, but please feel free to donate even more! Great Job kids!

As one of the few adults who participated. It was worth every sound of the buzzing razor.
