An event where 80 people had their head shaved to raise money to enhance cancer research and treatment at Children's National Medical Center in Washington, DC, raised more than $200,000 for the facility. The goal was to raise enough money to make the hospital a comprehensive cancer center. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis is the only pediatric cancer center to be given the designation by the National Cancer Institute.
