10 Years of St. Baldrick's at Southwest

On Friday, March 15th Southwest students took the stage to “Brave the Shave.” To raise money and awareness to fight childhood cancers Southwest Students decided to shave their heads. Forty-seven students across all grade levels participated.  In the 10th year, of what has become an annual tradition, Southwest set a school record raising $28,000. During their ten year span, Southwest has raised over $230,000. See below for the leading money raisers at Southwest.
