March 27 is St. Baldrick's Day

OSWEGO - The Oswego County Legislature recently proclaimed Wednesday, March 27, 2013 as St. Baldrick's Day in Oswego County. On this date, the SUNY Oswego athletic department, in concert with the County of Oswego and a group of dedicated local volunteer organizers, will sponsor the 7th annual fundraiser to support this worthy cause.

Many local groups have joined the effort and over 160 men, women and children from all walks of life will volunteer to shave their heads to raise money for the St. Baldrick's Foundation. They include the Oswego Firefighters Association, the Oswego County Sheriff's Department, the Oswego City Police Department, the U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Border Patrol and over 20 other groups from the greater Oswego County area. Last year, their efforts brought in more than $72,000.

The St. Baldrick's Foundation works to raise awareness and funding to support childhood cancer research and fellowship. All proceeds benefit the foundation which uses 82 percent of monies raised directly toward research.

To volunteer to be a participant or to donate to the campaign, go to www.stbaldricks.org/events/mypage/337/2013. For more information about the foundation, visit www.stbaldricks.org.
