Downtown Martinez St. Baldrick's Shave-A-Thon
The Citrus Salon Team is asking their community to join them for a very special event happening in March - The St. Baldrick’s signature head shaving event for Childhood Cancer Research. In the U.S, more children die of childhood cancer than any other disease-more than AIDS, asthma, cystic fibrosis, congenital anomalies, and diabetes combined. And yet, all types of childhood cancers combined receive only 4% of the U.S. federal funding for cancer research.
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long, healthy lives For the last 9 years Citrus Salon has hosted or co-hosted the Downtown Martinez St. Baldrick’s Shave-a-thon and raised over $200,000 for children's cancer research. Participants commit to shave their heads in solidarity with children fighting cancer and their friends and family sponsor them by donating to their cause. On the day of the shave-a-thon the “Shavees” get their heads shaved at our event in the Main Street Plaza while their supporters watch and enjoy live music and other activities.
Here’s how you can participate:
1. Head to https://www.stbaldricks.org/events/MartinezStBaldricks2020 2. Register as a “shavee” or volunteer
3. As a “shavee” you’ll GO BALD to show your support- and in the process inspire friends and family to donate to childhood cancer research
