MADISON — Dodger Soccer raised $35,000 in honor of their teammate at this year’s St. Baldrick’s Foundation fundraiser.
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a not-for-profit organization with the aim of raising funds to help find cures for children with cancer. The foundation’s name is not associated with a recognized Saint of the Catholic Church but is founded on wordplay and appropriation of the title of sainthood. Teammates received donations for shaving their heads in solidarity with their teammates and all children fighting cancer.
Remember: It’s always a great day to DO GOOD, Dodgers. @dodger_soccer #DodgerProud 💪🏽👨🏼🦲

Childhood cancer doesn’t discriminate. It affects kids from all walks of life, whether they’re learning to walk or learning to drive, live in big cities or small towns, or have brown eyes or blue eyes. It doesn’t discriminate based on ethnicity, gender, or socio-economic status. Kids with cancer deserve a lifetime and are the heart of the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
