For seven years running, a small group out of the Westport MKTG office have been supporting the St. Baldricks children’s cancer charity, each pledging to shave their heads in return for charitable donations.
Childhood cancers are very different than adult cancers, but less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget is solely dedicated to childhood cancer research. That is where St. Bladricks comes in. The foundation funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government. The charity has raised over $39 Million in 2017 alone.
We are very pleased to report that the team of Tom Hendry and Iain McWhirter surpassed their fundraising target of $5K, by raising $7,541 this year, taking the total raised for the charity to over $40K since 2011. Check out their new dos below!
