Help St. Baldrick’s

To the Editor:

The Crystal Lake Kiwanis Club’s second annual Kiwanis Santa Run for Kids was successful last December, raising money for many local charities.

We now are gearing up for our fifth annual St. Baldrick’s event, which benefits children all over the country fighting pediatric cancer. In the past four years we have raised over $92,000 between our public event and the private event held at Crystal Lake South High School by the CLS Key Club.

We want to thank McHenry County College for allowing us to host this event on campus again in the conference center.

How can you help? Raise money and then make a “bald” statement when you reach your goal, volunteer at the event, make a donation to our event or a particular shavee, or help us spread the word about this amazing experience you have to see or participate in.

Losing some hair, which will grow back, giving up a few hours of time or supporting the cause with a donation are small sacrifices compared to a child losing their battle with cancer, and a family losing a precious loved one. Our small sacrifices can make a major contribution in the fight against pediatric cancer.

We hope to see lots of bald heads after March 14. We will be shaving heads from 3 to 6 p.m. Please go to www.StBaldricks.org to sign up or donate. We encourage those wanting to get their heads shaved to sign up ahead of time so we have plenty of barbers.
