Volunteers Give Up Hair to Help Beat Cancer

It was head-shaving time Wednesday afternoon at Walt Whitman High School as teachers, parents and students lined up to contribute their hair to support the fight against childhood cancer.

St. Baldrick’s Day brings out volunteers willing to give up their hair in exchange for sponsors who donate to fund research to defeat pediatric cancer. Volunteers contribute on their own or form teams and compete to raise funds.

James Rogers, 8, took turns with his father, teacher Jaime Rogers, when it came time to clip or be clipped.

The Whitman event was one of several this week at schools. including Northport, and other venues.
