LAFD News:

The Los Alamos Fire Department hosted its fourth annual St. Baldricks head shaving fundraiser Thursday to help fight childhood cancer.

The event at Ashley Pond Park saw many firefighters lose their hair for a worthy cause.

The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity that funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government. Get involved and you’ll be giving hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers.
