Elkhart Central students help raise money for St. Baldrick's

Posted:

Some local high schoolers and Elkhart residents went bald for a good cause.

Elkhart Central High school hosted the head-shaving event to raise money for St. Baldrick's foundation.

Last year they raised about $5,000 and were hoping to meet that goal this year as well.

Students and community members both came out today to get their heads shaved.

They were also accepting donations for the organization.

Elkhart Central teacher and coordinator for the event Jeremy Ruff said, "It's amazing to see the amount of money and outpouring and just some kids, they want to be a part of something. They just want to come down and shave their head and show support in one way or another."

"It's amazing. you would be so surprised to see how good people are on the inside, you've just got to give them they motivation to do something and they really come out of the woodwork. It's really awesome to watch," said E.C.H.S. senior Lauryn Campagnoli.

Cosmetology students from the career center volunteered their services to help shave heads.

If you couldn't make it to the fundraiser today but are still interested in donating, visit St. Baldrick's website and search for Elkhart Central High School, then click "Join Us."
