FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – On Saturday after their game against Western Illinois the IPFW baseball team will trade in their bats for hair clippers and shave their heads.
The buzzing is all for a good cause. For the past four months, the ‘Dons have been taking part in a fundraiser with the Vs. Cancer Foundation to raise money for pediatric cancer research. Half of the money they raised will go to national cancer research. The other half goes directly to children with cancer right in Fort Wayne. Saturday’s shave marks the end of their fundraiser.
So far the team has raised a total of $5,655, surpassing their goal of $5,000.
