Can you tell who those folks in the photos above are? Probably a little difficult without the hair!
As we first told you back in early February a group from The Rockfish Presbyterian Church took part in an event to honor kids undergoing chemotherapy. ( who in the process lose their hair) This raises funds for cancer treatment and research, â€œTeam Rockfishâ€ had their heads shaved for Saturday night in Charlottesville.
We are working through St. Baldrickâ€™s Foundation which began in 1999
Here, Nelson County Life’s Perfect Fit columnist and owner of Nelson Physical Therapy, Agnes Schrider, is about to lose her hair, all of it!
Thanks to Jamie Heard of the church who sent us the photos and was one of the participants. Jamie wrote in Sunday morning to say:
Our team, The Rockfish Knuckle Heads, raised $8,890. We were the first place team in fund raising. The overall event raised $66,527 for childhood cancer research.
Way to Go, that is nothing to sneeze at Jamie! Congrats to everyone for a terrific fund raiser!
