Clinton FD Seeking Donations to Fight Childhood Cancer – shaving their heads for St Baldricks

 CLINTON, NJ. Firemen of the Clinton FD are seeking donations to find a cure for childhood cancer. The firemen will be shaving their heads in solidarity with kids fighting cancer while helping to fund life-saving research with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. All proceeds raised will go to St. Baldrick’s.

Every three minutes around the globe a child is diagnosed with cancer. This is unacceptable to a group of volunteers at the Clinton Fire
Department who are prepared to make a bald statement.

According to Clinton Fire Department Chief Walter Dorf, “This is our second year raising funds to help fight childhood cancer.” He stated “It is a terrible disease and to us it is unacceptable that it affects so many kids.” “The odds of surviving are stacked against many of the victims – one in five children with cancer will not survive so we have got to find a cure” added Dorf.

To pledge, visit st.baldricks.org/donate and search Clinton Fire Department. From there, one will be to see all of those who have pledged to
share their head as well as the team’s main page. Donations for the Clinton Fire Department effort are being accepted through Sept. 27, from noon to 5 p.m. at the Seargeantsville. On that day the firemen will be shaving their heads in solidarity with the children they are working to save.
