Members of Notre Dame Community proud to be "Bald and Beautiful"


Some members of the Notre Dame family are proud to be Bald and Beautiful.

Wednesday was the annual fundraiser to donate hair to cancer patients and fight pediatric cancer.

Participants have three options to choose from: They can shave their head, donate eight inches of hair or get hair extensions.

Or they can just donate money to Memorial Hospital and Saint Baldrick's.

"To see our peers and fellow students some and help us out, be so motivated to participate makes all this work worth it. And if I could take one thing from this event is that people are innately generous," says event organizer Betsy McGovern.

All hair donations will go to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program to make wigs for patients.

Head shaving benefited the St. Baldrick's Foundation.
