Bald for Lexi is an event where participants shave their heads to raise money for childhood cancer research, in memory of Lexi Brown, an Orcutt resident, died last May after a battle with cancer.
According to Kelly McLoughlin, St. Baldrick’s volunteer organizer, donations raised at events like these have made it possible for the organization to donate more than $178 million to support development of childhood cancer treatments.
