NASHUA — On Saturday, volunteers from the Greater Nashua area will be shaving their heads to help raise money for cancer research.
Wilfred’s Barber Shop, 95 W. Pearl St., is hosting the St. Baldrick’s Foundation head-shaving event from 3 to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
The goal is to raise $5,000 and awareness for life-saving childhood cancer research. So far, 10 participants have registered to shave their heads to support the foundation’s mission to conquer childhood cancers, according to a press release.
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-driven and donor-centered charity dedicated to funding the most promising research initiatives to find cures, according to the release.
The volunteers have collected pledges in advance of the event.
