On Wednesday, May 22, Shorewood High School is holding the annual event, Buzz Cuts for Cancer, which raises money for the MACC (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer) Fund. This year, the students have a goal to raise $30,000. In exchange for friends, family, and community members contributing to the cause, Shorewood students and staff will volunteer to have their heads shaved in the SHS Arena on Wednesday.
By providing funding for research, the MACC Fund’s goal is to find a cure for childhood cancer and related blood disorders. Since the MACC Fund began, the five-year survival rate for all types of childhood cancer rates went from 20% to 80% today.
Thanks to generous donors, participants, and volunteers, the MACC Fund has contributed over $65 million dollars to childhood cancer and related blood disorders research. Your support of critical research impacts children throughout the country and the world. Successful protocols developed in Wisconsin have become the standard for patient care across not only the United States – but around the world.
Please consider pledging a “buzzie” and helping the MACC Fund become one step closer to reaching their goal. To donate, visit http://shorewoood-buzz-cuts.everydayhero.do/ or contact head coordinator Lisa Bromley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
