Middletown Firefighters Hold Shave a Hero // Save a Hero Event

The Shave a Hero// Save a Hero event is a family oriented, heartfelt afternoon aiming to raise as many funds as possible so that we at Infinite Love for Kids Fighting Cancer can help fulfill desperately needed research grants specific to children's cancers. This event will be held RAIN or SHINE!

WHEN: Saturday July 29, 2017

TIME: Noon - 4:00pm

WHERE: Community Firehouse Station #4,
75 Appleton Avenue
Leonardo, NJ

This beautiful, fun-filled afternoon will consist of food, activities, raffles, prizes, face-painting, balloon animals, lots of laughter and OF COURSE head shaving!

While the main attraction will be our BIG heroes (local firefighters, police officers and first-aid responders), being shaved by our LITTLE heroes (both childhood cancer fighters and survivors), shaving is open to anyone willing to go for the bald is beautiful our eyes ANYONE willing to shave their head or help us in any other capacity is a true hero!

Remember, whether you plan on shaving or not...ALL ARE WELCOME at our event so spread the word and we CAN'T WAIT to see you!!

I first heard of this event while driving home from work yesterday morning while listening to Shellie Sonstein on Q104.3, and knew that I just had to let others know about it. If you would like to learn more about the fundraiser and organization, checkout the website Infinite Love for Kids Fighting Cancer.  If you can't attend the fundraiser and/or wish to support the cause, you can do so ... HERE   Thanks MM

Above, 6-year-old Mia McCaffrey shaves 1st Asst. Chief (Middletown Twp. Fire Dept) Ryan Clarke's head during the filming of "Fighter" (August 2016). This past March 17th Mia passed away from the cancer that she was fighting (parameningeal rhabdomyosarcoma). Shave a Hero//Save a Hero was inspired by Mia's brave fight and all will be raised in her beautiful name to fight the very cancer that took her life.
