The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity aimed to, “raise money for childhood cancer research, because research saves lives.” Their head-shaving event, Brave The Shave, allows supporters to shave their heads to show cancer-stricken children that they are proud to sport the bald look that so many children struggle with during their ailment. Doing so sends children the message that they are not alone and that their baldness is beautiful. Furthermore, participants are motivated by donations from family and friends to reach an established set goal, prior to shaving their head, much like a walk-a-thon. All the money raised will help fund the much needed research for childhood cancer. For more information on The St. Baldrick’s Foundation and how to support their cause, please click here.
Dallas Police Officers have banded together to contribute to this worthwhile charity. Several members of the department have formed a team for the Brave The Shave event. Each member has established a different monetary goal to reach in donations, but the overall team goal is $2,500. However, the officers have created competition amongst themselves, for whomever raises the most money gets to designate which team member actually receives the head shave. The idea to create a Dallas P.D. team came from Team Captain/Deputy Chief Scott Walton, who will be shaving his head regardless of who claims the winning title. For some officers, this is a very personal cause because of a family member or friend who’s been affected by cancer. For others, this is a noble cause that the officers were drawn towards.
The Dallas Police Department would like to give thanks to these leaders, and all the supporters who have donated to the furtherance of childhood cancer research:
“There is something that pulls us all toward being police officers. To say it is to “help people” is really too generic. I think we really have a desire to be there for people who are at their most vulnerable. We have dedicated our lives to standing between these people and those that would try to take advantage of them. Raising funds for childhood cancer research is no different. We cannot arrest cancer but we sure can raise money to support those who can stop it. In short, participating in this event is really just an extension of who we are and the core values we share.” –Deputy Chief Scott Walton
“My 14 year old niece passed away from cancer a year and a half ago. I want to give back so no other family has to go through what my family had to go through.” -Officer Monica Cordova
“I have a daughter, 8, and a son who is about to turn 4. I considered the St. Baldrick’s mission and how devastated I would feel if either of my children were diagnosed with cancer. I wanted to be the kind of support that I would hope for were that ever to happen to my kids. “ –Major Max Geron
The team has already surpassed their $2,500 goal with the overwhelming support of their family and friends. Now, the participants are finishing out the competition by trying to out-fundraise each other. To donate to the Dallas Police Department team, please click here to visit their webpage. If you would like to cheer these officers on during their shave, the finale will take place Saturday, March 28, 2015, 10:30 a.m., at the Trinity Hall – Irish Pub and Restaurant, located at 5321 E. Mockingbird Lane.

It all started when Chad Kleis asked his Facebook friends to send birthday cards to make his son’s ninth birthday special. Hunter is autistic, non-verbal, and does not have many friends to have a birthday party so his dad tries to make every birthday memorable.

Due to the overwhelming responses and donations, Hunter’s Birthday Bash was created to raise awareness for Autism. Mr. Kleis saw this as an opportunity to invite other autistic children to join Hunter to celebrate and not feel different.
DPD was honored to be part of Hunter’s Birthday Bash on March 21, 2015. The Hero’s, Cops, and Kids made it a memorable event for the children. KISS FM, Frisco Firefighters, The Au-some Crawler, and others were also there to show support for Autism Awareness.
