Hey guys,


Quick Background:

The St. Baldricks Foundation is an organization that raises money for research towards a cure for childrens cancer. They do this by having volunteers host events, in which more volunteers shave their heads. Last year the organization raised over $15 million. This will be the 5th year that I have been a shavee.

During my junior year of high school, two members of my lacrosse team were diagnosed with cancer (testicular and b cell lymphoma). To help support, how team hosted an event. Our first (and smallest) year, we raised about $30K from our event alone. It had been growing since, but for some reason, this year Nanuet Boys Lacrosse was no longer able to hold this event.

I had not planned at participating this year (wanted a warm head for the rest of winter ;D), but my schools Gaelic society is hosting and needed volunteers, so once again, im goin bald!


What I need:

The event is next tuesday, March 10. Since this was such short notice I have very little time to raise money. I have only set my goal for $1000, and am very hopeful to surpass that. So I need your donations.

I am not asking for much, just $5 or $10 per person, and all proceeds go directly to research for finding a cure.

This is a great foundation, and I would really appreciate any support I could get. I'm sure that every single member of this community knows or has known someone who has had cancer.


How:

If you would like to sponsor me, please go to www.stbaldricks.org

1) click on "Find a participant" on the tabs on the top of the page.
2) Search for Zachary Bach, shavee
3) click "Donate Now"



Thanks again everybody, I really appreciate. I'll post a current picture later, and next week get an after picture.

and just for the hell of it, one ride shot from the first ride of the year :D

I'll throw something on my card tonight Zach. Considering I shaved my head for it last year and also played for the same Lax team I probably should...

You get the text I sent you yesterday?

SVR really stepped up to help my wife's charity so the least I can do is return the favor.
