St. Baldrick's

What is St. Baldrick’s?   It is a crazy head shaving event that raises money to support childhood cancer research.  Worldwide, a child is diagnosed with cancer every two minutes – that’s 300,000 kids every year!  We want to support these kids! Over the past four years, Spinelli Elementary has raised over $44,000 for childhood cancer research.   Last year we had over 49 very brave Tigers give up their hair for this cause.   Our 2018 St. Baldrick's event will take place on Monday, March 19th from 1:30-2:40PM on the upper blacktop.  We invite all Tigers and their families to  join us in this very important cause. Follow this link to sign up or make a donation: https://www.stbaldricks.org/events/Spinelli   Get involved and you'll be giving hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers.
