On Friday, November 6th in Millbrook’s auditorium, Alan Cortez, Elijah Doyle, Elyk Amick, Alex Hicks, Madelyn Shores, Nick Orndoff, Ryan Kim, Kyle Keenan, Nathan Wiens, Mr. Rogus, Mr. Wooley, and Ms. Redcay shaved their heads to raise money for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
“All my friends said I couldn’t do it.” said Nick Orndoff and Nathan Wiens said, “I feel weird, a little light headed.” The St. Baldrick website explains that “The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-powered charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long, healthy lives.“
Together the seven students and 3 teachers raised a total of $2,129 for children with cancer. “We need to model what it looks like to make a difference,” said Ms. Redcay. Students can still help them reach their $5,000 goal by donating. See Mr. Arney for details, they only have $2,871 to go.
