Among the celebrations on St. Patrick's Day was this..one of many local head-shaving events in support of pediatric cancer research.

Worldwide, every three minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer. In the U.S, one in five will not survive.

The St. Baldrick's Foundation wants to end that by raising critical funds for childhood cancer research. This year, more than forty local "shavee's" signed up, collected donations and took their turn in the barber's chair at Legends Sports Grill & Pub in Shelby.

St. Baldrick's head-shaving events began as a challenge between businessmen, and have grown from one event in 2000 to over 1,300 events in 2012. Many of the attendee's were first-timer's, but a handful of individuals make this a yearly tradition. More than 14,000 was raised online, before the event started.
