Three Events - One Common Cause - St. Baldrick’s Foundation

Three events in one day, all to benefit St. Baldrick's Foundation to conquer childhood cancer. The first was a charity workout hosted by CrossFit Krypton in Chesapeake. The main event was at Roger Brown's in Portsmouth where several participants had their heads shaved to raise donations for the foundation. The grand finale was a continuation of the shaving at Big Ugly Brewing in Chesapeake. Overall, the day's events brought in over $60,000 in donations specifically for children's cancer research. Donations are still being accepted at
