Men shave heads to support kids with cancer

LUBBOCK, TX. (KCBD) - Lubbock men show their support for kids with cancer. Enough men shaved their heads to help raise nearly 2,000 dollars Tuesday for the St. Baldrick's Foundation. They did this at the Focal Point Fellowship Church in Lubbock. Not only did the men get shaved and give donations, but also they also brought attention to raffle items that were up for sale. Interim Youth Minister Jeff Karr describes why his church got involved.

"All of the proceeds go to kids with cancer research. So, we're trying to get the church more involved in the community, and really pull the community together for each other in something that's a wonderful cause: kids cancer," said Karr. 

You don't have to go bald to help. There are other ways including donations.
