Video: 100-plus shave heads at St. Baldrick's event
April 15, 2013
On April 11, Rho Nu Delta hosted the annual St. Baldrick's event to raise money for childhood cancer research. Participants opted to publicly shave their heads in return for donations. Head shaving for St. Baldrick's is a symbol of solidarity and support for the thousands of kids who lose their hair during chemotherapy treatments every year.
As of April 15, the Augustana event has raised more than $30,000.
Donations are still being accepted online.
Student blogger Rukmini Girish had her head shaved and reflected on the process.
