Time to Shave!
On Monday, March 19, Spinelli Elementary hosted its fifth annual St. Baldrick’s event. Over the past five years, the CJUSD students, staff, and families have helped to raise $56,800 for childhood cancer research. An amazing accomplishment! We were excited to have our St. Baldrick’s honored child, Jazmin P, at our event. Jazmin is four years old and has been fighting childhood cancer for the past two years. She is doing well and we are grateful that she was able to join us for this celebration. Jazmin helped recognize our St. Baldrick’s participants that have shaved for three or more years. A total of 30 individuals give up their hair in an effort to raise funds for childhood cancer research. Participants included students from Spinelli Elementary, Wilson C. Riles, and Center High School. Other participants included family and friends of CJUSD students and staff. Once again, we had 10 barbers from Paul Mitchell School help to shave all these heads! Reed Baumgarten from Keaton’s Child Cancer Alliance praised the participants for their courage and thanked them for raising awareness of the need for childhood cancer research. Because of these brave individuals and all of the people that supported them, more children with cancer have access to clinical trials and chances for a cure. Together we are making a difference in the world of childhood cancer.
