St. Baldrick's Foundation

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND (WBAL Baltimore) - Most people can't help it when it happens, but many deliberately went bald Sunday in the name of charity.

More than 200 men, women and children shaved their heads at Martin's East in Middle River for the fourth annual Baltimore Heroes St. Baldrick's Event.

Among those who shaved their heads were child cancer survivors and their loved ones, who shared their stories of survival with event-goers.

"It's hard for me to look at sick kids. My daughter had a bone marrow transplant herself, and we've met so many kids along the way that have been sick and lost their lives, and I think it's unacceptable," said event organizer Dan Jarkiewicz. "I think everybody should try to do everything they can to try to avoid it in the future."

More than 160,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year.

Event organizers said they raised more than $150,000 during Sunday's event.
