On April 14, 2011 several members of the Rochelle Police Department and their families volunteered to have their heads shaved for the St. Baldrick's "shave-a-thon", held at Xpressions in Rochelle.
St. Baldrick's day is the world's largest volunteer driven fundraising event for childhood cancer research. Thousands of volunteers shave their heads in solidarity with children fighting cancer, requesting donations of support from friends and family.
Volunteers and donors have fun supporting a serious cause. Young cancer patients and survivors see how many people care, and researchers get funds from St. Baldrick's to help find cures!
