UNC-Chapel Hill junior Alison Grady raised more than $300 for the second annual BaseBald for the Cure at Boshamer Stadium after Saturday’s baseball game. For her hard work, she was shaved bald. Grady, along with members of the baseball team and fans, shaved their heads to help raise cancer awareness.
Chase Jones, bullpen catcher for the team and a brain cancer survivor, created the BaseBald fundraiser to combine two of his favorite things — baseball and bringing smiles to children with cancer. BaseBald donations go to the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center’s pediatric oncology unit, helping to pay for things like pizza parties and juice boxes.
