VIDEO: Going Bald to Help Kids with Cancer

John Anderson shows off his close shave at St. Baldrick's fund-raiser.

John Anderson has been growing his hair since May to help raise money for kids with cancer. It was beginning to stick out funny under his baseball cap, so John was thankful on Saturday that it was finally time for a close shave.

Anderson was one of more than 60 men, plus boys from Caldwell football and soccer teams, who went bald in support of St. Baldrick's Foundation, a charity for pediatric cancers, at the Shillelagh Club of West Orange.

You could just about hear the buzz of the clippers over the band as barbers volunteering their own time gave each of the participants a close shave.

Anderson joined the Shillelagh Club a year ago when he attended the St. Baldrick’s event. "It really made an impact on me, seeing how organized and dedicated our group was, how much money we made," Anderson said.

His grandfather, Walter Joyce shares this video of the benefit.
