St. Baldrick's update

Last week, we raved about the St. Baldrick's Foundation that raises awareness and funds to cure kid's cancer by supporting research and fellowships. Not knowing anyone personally involved, we checked out the locals who were raising money to shave their heads on the website We found Connor who was recently diagnosed with alopecia which was causing his hair to fall out, so he could really relate to the cancer patients who lose their hair. St. Baldrick's has a great website so we were easily able to donate online. Connor had already reached his goal amount- and then some. His goal amount was $500 and he raised $1626. His dad, Greg, made a side bet with him that if he made it to $1500 he would shave his head too. So, this past weekend, they both got shaved. There are more shaving events through the end of the month in Indiana, and even one in May in Elkhart so check out the website and see whose fundraising efforts you can help. You look great Connor and Greg- we are inspired!
