Our students often make us proud. This is another example of East Coast Martial Arts students displaying character, confidence and leadership in the community. Before highlighting these young leaders, we would like to acknowledge St. Baldrick’s for the work they do.
Worldwide, 175,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year. And in the U.S., more children die of childhood cancer than any other disease—more than AIDS, asthma, cystic fibrosis, congenital anomalies and diabetes combined. St. Baldrick’s head-shaving events began as a challenge between businessmen and have grown from one event in 2000 to over 1,300 events in 2013, raising critical funds for childhood cancer research.
