Cubberley Raises Funds to Fight Cancer

Cubberley K-8 School recently raised more than $40,000 to help conquer children’s cancer at its annual St. Baldrick’s Day event.  The school leads the nation in the number of students involved in such an event, according to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

Cubberley’s 140 participants, more than half of them children, shaved their heads after collecting pledges.  Students were joined by parents, school staff, friends and family.

During the past 10 years, Cubberley has raised more than $440,000 through the annual event.
