St Baldrick’s Foundation began in 2000 over a simple idea – shave a colleague’s beautiful hair while also raising money for kids with cancer. And now this Foundation has funded over $200 million worth of research to cure pediatric
cancer. In 2015, the FDA approved a treatment that offers a higher chance of a cure for high-risk neuroblastoma patients because of that research.

Money is raised around the country every March and Paddy’s Steakhouse and Pub on Route 610 in Stafford will host its 15th annual St. Baldrick’s event on Sunday, March 12. The first event was in 2003. Rock Hill Fire Department asked them to partner with them and they took it over a few years later. Now 15 years later, they’ve successfully raised over $415,000!

“We shave our hair now so that one day no child will have to lose theirs,” says Helen.
