*** IN THE DISTRICT ***

St. Baldrick’s 2019:

About Childhood Cancer 

  • More children are lost to cancer in the U.S. than any other disease in fact, more than many other childhood diseases combined. 
  • Before they turn 20, about 1 in 285 children in the U.S. will have cancer. 
  • Worldwide, a child is diagnosed every 2 minutes. 

DO YOU HAVE HAIR? Then you can help save a life.

Over the past 8 years, the St. Baldrick’s Fundraiser at Resurrection Parish has raised well over $100,000 to fund childhood cancer research! We are in need of kind children and adults of all ages to continue the tradition. If you have already signed up to help out this year, THANK YOU. If not, please consider participating in this exciting event. 

EVENT: Friday, June 7th from 5 to 7pm in the Community Room. Resurrection Parish 651 Millbrook Ave, Randolph, NJ

Three opportunities to raise money:

  • Have head shaved 
  • Have hair braided 
  • Make a donation and sponsor someone who is having his/her hair shaved or braided

We will have raffles, a fire truck, food, T-shirts and games for all participants!

Everyone is welcome!
