St. Baldrick's Fundraiser with Mrs. Meridian, Mrs. Boise & Mrs. Central Valley

Today, Mrs. Central Valley Melinda, Mrs. Boise Sondra and I volunteered at St. Baldrick's Fundraiser held at the Knitting Factory Concerthouse in Boise. Volunteers shaved their heads in solidarity with kids fighting cancer and family and friends gave generously. Our local goal was to raise $50,000. As of the start of the event today, St. Baldrick's had already exceeded that goal and had raised over $62,000. St. Baldrick's funds are granted to some of the most brilliant childhood cancer research experts in the world to find cures and improve the quality of life for patients and survivors. The Foundation funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government. Today, I cheered on my fellow brother firefighters from Star Fire as they shaved their heads in support of these brave children. As you can see from some of the pics, they allowed me to do some of the shaving, which was a BLAST for all of us! This was such a rouch and wonderful experience. Hugs, Erika Mrs. Meridian
