BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA – The 2016 St Baldricks shave event at The Avenue Viera is in the books.
This year was particularly special because it marks the fifth anniversary of Brevard County Fire Rescue and Brevard County Sheriff’s Office partnership with this particular event totaling $250,000 for pediatric cancer.
The Brevard County Fire Rescue thanks everyone who supported this successful event and hopes to see everyone next year.
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is an international volunteer organization that has raised more than $125 million dollars for childhood cancer research just through head-shaving events.
“Over the years, we have grown our event to became the 10th largest event in North America in total dollars raised out of over 1,300 events,” said Garrett Lamp, who spearheaded the event.
“This is truly amazing, and a true testament to Brevard County’s commitment to finding an end to childhood cancer.”
