Local business giving their support
Brave a Shave for Kids with Cancer
Because kids with cancer often lose their hair during treatment, “shavees℠” for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation show their support by shaving their heads voluntarily, and inspiring friends and family to donate money to support childhood cancer research. Brave a Shave for Kids with Cancer is a great and fun event that will be held at Cooper Hill Pizzeria again this year, so it’s a great reason to stop by for lunch, a beverage…. and get your head shaved! There will also be a raffle with offerings from local businesses up for grabs – including Northwood Garage, of course!

…honestly it was one of the best experiences I have had, not only shaving, but walking around bald and being able to inspire others… — Eric M.
Shaving my head for St. Baldrick’s is the most meaningful thing I have ever done in my life. — Alicia D.
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-powered charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long, healthy lives.
Big hearts in a small town
I was chatting with Judy Pease who has been instrumental in organizing this event. Turns out she has been doing this for 5 years in our town. Her husband, Charlie has been braving the shave for 10 years. He did 4 years at The Draft in Concord, 1 at the Stone Church in Newmarket, and 5 here at Cooper Hill Pizzeria. Judy said; “Time flies when you’re having fun…” . Special thank you to Judy and Charlie Pease, they’re doing great things to help others.
How it started
An Idea is Born, July 4th 1999
Tim Kenny issues a challenge to colleagues John Bender and Enda McDonnell: How will you give back in return for your own good fortune in business? Enda’s thick head of hair gives John the big idea—shave their heads for donations to raise funds for kids with cancer.
$100 million mark in research grant funding
St. Baldrick’s volunteers raise more than $30 million in 2012 by shaving heads and raising funds in bold new ways. This year’s record-setting fundraising efforts allow the foundation to mark a milestone—$100 million in childhood cancer research grants since 2005.
