Donate to the BPD team "Boise's Finest". Your donation will help
officers fund cancer research and help survivors live long, healthy
Boise, March 5, 2012 - Members of the
Boise Police Department are going to give it up... their hair that
is! A group of 14 officers will have their heads shaved this
Saturday to help raise funds for the St. Baldrick's Foundation.
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.
This is the fifth year Boise Police have
teamed together for the head shaving fund raiser. Officer Jim Adams
has coordinated the event each year.
"Cancer touches all our lives, and the
ones that need the most reassurance are the kids," said Officer
Adams. "We want to let kids battling cancer and those surviving
cancer know that we care, and we're here to support them when they
need it most."
TO DONATE: Boise PD's team is called
"Boise's Finest". http://www.stbaldricks.org/teams/boisesfinest
will take you directly to the team page to make a donation.
Boise's Finest hope to match the amount
collected in 2011 with another $9,000 in donations again his year.
Thanks in advance for any help.
The St. Baldrick's fund raiser is this
Saturday afternoon, March 10th at the Knitting Factory 416 S. 9th
Street, downtown Boise.
Thanks again for your support.
