North Dakota first responders join in the fight against pediatric cancer

BISMARCK, ND (KFYR) — Dozens of police and firefighters braved the shave Saturday to raise money for childhood cancer.

Brave the Shave teamed up with Guns and Hoses, an annual event and friendly rivalry between departments to see who can raise more money. Former Bismarck Police Chief Dan Donlin said that almost everyone is affected by cancer in one way or another and that this is their way of giving back.

“For me, when you see kids going through it [cancer] it just tears my heart apart and that’s why I love being involved to show the support for these families,” said Donlin.

Brave the Shave is gearing up for next year’s events, but needs $78,000 more to reach this year’s fundraising goal.
