St. Baldrick’s in Candor Has Raised $343K for Child Cancer Research

St. Baldrick Candor is a family fun-filled day to raise money for pediatric cancer research. Over the previous 10 years, the St. Baldrick’s event has raised a total of $343,414. Even before the first razor begins buzzing to shave heads in late March, St. Baldrick’s volunteers in Candor are hosting events in the community.

St. Baldrick will host a “Doug’s to go” Fish Fry at the Candor fire station on Friday, February 7. Drop by the food truck from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. for lunch or dinner.

 

The tenth annual St. Baldrick’s Shave-a-Thon and 5K run/walk will happen on Sunday, March 29 at the Candor Elementary School. Candor’s St. Baldrick’s volunteers have been busy organizing for the event since mid-November.

 

 

St. Baldrick’s team is also sorting through gently used good for the community Indoor Yard Sale which will happen in late February or early March.

 

And during the month of March, a can and bottle drive is scheduled. Look for collection wagons parked at the Iron Kettle Farm and Hi-Way Dairy Bar.

 

The main event kicks off Sunday morning, March 29 with a 5K run/walk that provides a tour of town. This year the race begins at 9 a.m. and then the Shave-a-Thon goes from 1 – 4 p.m.

 

There are many ways to participate in the event: sign up to be a shave; register for the 5K; or become a sponsor. The St. Baldrick’s organizers are seeking business and individual sponsors who, in return, gain fame on the back of the 5K T-shirt. They are also seeking donations of gift basket donations, raffle items, and food for the concession stand.
