WASHINGTON - The 2012 national runner-up Georgetown University men's soccer team is teaming up with the Georgetown University Medical Center to help raise money for childhood cancer through the St. Baldrick's Foundation.
St. Baldrick's Day will be hosted by the Georgetown University Medical School on Thursday, April 11, beginning at 4 p.m. The event will be held in Leavey Center's Sellinger Lounge, located on Georgetown's campus. Donations through the men's soccer program can be made online by visiting:
Since children with cancer often lose their hair during treatment "shavees" for the St. Baldrick's Foundation show their support by shaving their heads voluntarily and inspire friends and family to donate money to support childhood cancer.
St. Baldrick's Foundation hosts events around the world to raise money for childhood cancer. Over 175,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year and in the United States more children die of childhood cancer than any other disease. On average children lose 71 years of life to cancer.
Please come out and help the Georgetown men's soccer team and the Georgetown University Medical School raise funds to find a cure for this devastating disease.
