Officers to Shave it Off to Fight Kids Cancer

    Boise, Feb. 10, 2010 – It’s time again for St. Baldrick’s, a fun and revealing fund raising activity where participants collect donations to shave their heads to support Childhood cancer research.

    Last year, a team of 17 Boise Police officers participated, shaving their heads for the cause and collecting more than $3,700!

    Boise Police are asking the public’s support once again to help with this terrific cause.
