More than 70 men, women and children volunteered to shave their heads to increase awareness of childhood cancer and to raise money for research during the annual St. Baldrick's event earlier this month at the Cleveland Heights Community Center.
The event is organized by Krissy Dietrich Gallagher, a Cleveland Heights woman whose family has been personally touched by cancer.
Her son Austin battled cancer twice before he was six years old.
Gallagher recently announced on her blog, The Luckiest, that this year's St. Baldrick's event raised raised $43,291. .
Several local schools -- including Heights High, Roxboro, Fairfax and even Fernway School in Shaker Heights -- had teams that rose money and shaved their heads in a show of support.
Team Fairfax raised the most money -- single-handedly bringing in more than $14,000.
People can check out more than 300 photos from the event that Gallagher posted on her Flickr page.
Finally, donations can still be made to St. Baldrick's Foundation on their web site.
