Dozens of people are sporting newly bald heads across Kentucky.

More than 100 men and women shaved their locks all in the name of charity at Fourth Street Live! in Louisville.

It was part of the St. Baldrick's Fundraiser, which is the world's largest volunteer-driven fundraising event for childhood cancer research.

Those who donated their hair say they won't miss a strand.

"Definitely worth it to me, if we can save one kid, it is absolutely all worth it," said Michelle Childers.

Jessica Weeks said, "If everybody pitches in a dollar, two dollars to get the research done babies don't have to die, they don't have to go through the horrible treatments and they can get better."

There's a Saint Baldrick's event planned for June 1st at Ri-Ra in downtown Evansville.

The upcoming event has already raised more than $2,600.

You can find information for that event, as well as more information about the Saint Baldrick's Foundation by clicking here.
