Firefighters Shave Heads For Good Cause

Local firefighters shaved their heads to support Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation and St. Baldrick’s Foundation on March 7. The Truckee Meadows and Incline Fire Fighters Associations partnered with the Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation (NNCCF) for a charity event in conjunction with St. Baldrick’s Foundation signature head-shaving event. 

Firefighters joined the St. Baldrick’s Foundation for their second annual “Day at the Firehouse,” where firefighters and NNCCF families came together for their signature head-shaving event. This was an opportunity for NNCCF families to take a few hours out of their day to not think about the struggles of cancer. Firefighters also presented these families with more than $3,600 in food and fuel gift cards. This annual event also serves as a  “pre-shave” for the annual St. Baldrick’s fundraiser scheduled later that month.
