VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - This Friday, students and teachers at Princess Anne Middle School are having a "St. Baldrick's Bash" to raise money for childhood cancer research.
The St. Baldrick's Foundation is a volunteer-powered charity that funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government.
Since April 9th, the school has been fundraising and are hoping to hit a $10,000 goal. They've been collecting coins and started a friendly competition between the classes to see who can raise the most money.
One of their classmates, Abby, is a two-time cancer survivor and was a St. Baldrick's ambassador last year.
The big bash is after school Friday, April 20th, where 23 students and teachers will be shaving their heads.
