Santa Monica firefighters will host the annual St. Baldrick’s Foundation Head-Shaving event this Saturday, Sept. 24, at 3 p.m. on the Santa Monica Promenade.

More than 60 people, including Santa Monica firefighters, will shave their heads for Childhood Cancer Research.

The goal of the event is to raise $20,000, which will go towards life-saving childhood cancer research.

Why all the shaved heads?

St. Baldrick’s is a nonprofit organization that raises funds for childhood cancer research by hosting its signature worldwide head-shaving events where volunteers collect pledges to shave their heads in solidarity with kids with cancer, raising money for life-saving research.

The Fire Chief and Fire Captain will also be in attendance and kids will be able to tour fire trucks.
