Students, faculty, families and friends joined together to “brave the shave” Friday at Holy Trinity School’s 5th Annual St. Baldrick's event. Thirty seven participants got donations for pediatric cancer research before having their heads shaved in solidarity with kids fighting cancer.

Since 2016, more than 350 members of the Holy Trinity community have shaved their heads as part of the fundraiser. To date, Holy Trinity School has raised more than $125,000 for pediatric cancer research. This year, with help from volunteer barbers from five local salons, the participants raised over $26,000 and counting.

The event also included hair braiding stations whose proceeds will benefit Shanerock, a local nonprofit dedicated to providing financial assistance to local families affected by pediatric cancer.

Holy Trinity School, a private Catholic school in Avon, serves 460 students in grades K-8.
