Admirals Playoff Beards Support Fight Against Pediatric Cancer
NORFOLK, Va. – The Norfolk Admirals are proud to announce that several players are growing their beards in support of the St. Baldrick's Foundation and the fight against pediatric cancer.
During the playoffs, it is hard to find a hockey player without a beard. The Admirals are no different. However, Admirals players such as Scott Jackson and Eric Neilson are growing theirs to support the St. Baldrick's Foundation, a charity committed to funding research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.
Approximately 160,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year. It is the number one disease-killer of children in the United States and Canada. St. Baldrick's Foundation primarily raises money through head-shaving events in unity with children who typically lose their hair during cancer treatments. Through these events, volunteers discover the power they have to bring hope to children around the world.
