Charley Shaves His Head This Saturday In Support Of Childhood Cancer
The 'Chop the Mop III' event originally scheduled during the great Colorado flood has bee rescheduled for this Saturday in Greeley. The event to be held at Weld County Garage will benefit two charities: Zac's Legacy Foundation and the St. Baldrick's Foundation.
I can't imagine what it must be like for families to see their children suffer from cancer. Is there anything more unfair? I have tears streaming down my face just wondering if I would even be strong enough to deal with such a thing. Of course, those families do find the strength from within themselves, and others.
Tomorrow is a great time to get involved in Weld County and join the Zac's Legacy Foundation and others who will be holding a fundraiser at Weld County Garage (2699 47th Ave) this Saturday starting at 2:00 PM this Saturday. Local business' will be offering all kinds of services that we use anyway, like $5 haircuts and massages, a silent auction and raffle items. It's a win-win event and you can't buy the feeling it will give you to donate a few bucks to help kids with cancer.
In fact, to show my support, I am going to get one of those $5 haircuts and I am cutting it all off, gone! Bald! It's the least I can do to let these families know there are others who are well aware of this childhood travesty.
More children die of childhood cancer than any other disease. More than AIDS, asthma, cystic fibrosis, congenital anomalies and diabetes combined and The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is trying to help change those realities by working closely with leading pediatric oncologists to determine the most promising research to fund and create funding priorities to make the greatest impact for children with cancer.
This weekend though they need our help. An event has been established at Weld County Garage in Greeley. So come on by and donate a few bucks, get a massage, get a haircut or just watch me get mine shaved off. I dare ya!
