Posted at 11:35 PM, Jan 30, 2019

PUEBLO – Sheriff’s deputies in Pueblo County are helping raise money for childhood cancer research by shaving their heads. Coming up in March, several deputies are voluntarily participating in an event by the nonprofit St. Baldrick’s Foundation. It will culminate with a special hair cutting party, where all those deputies will have their heads shaved clean.

“I believe that we can a have positive change,” says Pueblo County Deputy Brad Riccillo who is one of the volunteers. “We can do something on a local level to effect that and so that is why I have decided to do something about it and make a difference.”

The head-shaving ceremony is happening March 16.

Since 2000, St. Baldrick’s Foundation has raised $118 million for cancer research. For more information visit their website.
