ATSU’s Physician Assistant (PA) students and the Kettle Society dedicated the month of March to St. Baldrick’s Foundation by holding a fundraiser where students shaved their heads and hiked Camelback Mountain.

The students vowed that for every $100 raised, one PA student would hike Camelback Mountain, and for every $1,000 raised, one PA student would shave their head.

“During the month of March a total of $4,082 was raised and because of this we upheld our side of the deal, but the spirit spread quickly and 11 students ended up shaving their heads (including one professor),” said Payton Leonhardt, PA, ’13.  “We hoped to demonstrate that we are willing to stand by the sides of those children fighting cancer and offer our hearts throughout the battle.”

The class sponsored a hike of Camelback Mountain and also hosted a bake sale to raise funds for pediatric cancers which raised more than $665 in one day.

St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives. Since 2000, St. Baldrick’s Foundation has raised more than 120 million dollars for childhood cancer research. The organization funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization with the exception of the U.S. government.
