The community is invited to participate in a Saint Baldrick’s event sponsored by the Elmira College Love Your Melon Crew on Friday, April 28 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Meier Hall.

During this event, participants will have their heads shaved as a fundraising effort to support childhood cancer research through the Saint Baldrick’s Foundation.  By voluntarily shaving their heads, the participants hope to inspire friends and the community to donate to the cause, but also raise awareness for the challenges facing cancer patients. 

The event will also feature raffles, arts and crafts, and other fun activities. Visit the Saint Baldrick’s website to learn more and make an online donation.

The EC Love Your Melon Crew is a part of the national Love Your Melon campaign to raise awareness for childhood cancer. Since 2012, the program has grown to include over 13,500 crew members nationwide at 840 different educational institutions, including Elmira College.
