John Heneghan - My Hero!
When it comes to helping children - Dunwoody City Councilman John Heneghan puts his money where his --- hair is! John will be having his head shaved this Friday at Fado Irish Pub to raise funds and awareness for childhood cancer.
In his words --
Shaving my head this upcoming Friday afternoon may seem as an unusual fund-raiser, but it is undertaken in solidarity with children with cancer, who often lose their hair during treatment.
St. Baldrick's is the world's largest volunteer-driven fundraising event for childhood cancer research. Thousands of volunteers shave their heads in solidarity of children with cancer, while requesting donations of support from friends and family. Since 2005, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation has funded 23 Fellows and 12 Scholars, helping launch brilliant new careers in childhood cancer research, and awarded over $28 million to support research at more than 230 institutions.
