SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Hundreds of people went bald Sunday at Kitty Hoynes in Syracuse for the annual St. Baldrick's event.

It's grown over the years, becoming one of the largest and most popular in the region. People of all ages faced the clippers to raise money for research to fight childhood cancers.

We spoke with one father-daughter team who shaved their heads in honor of a four-year-old family member who died from cancer.

"To find a cure, to try and find a cure for childhood cancers that are killing kids and I just think that is awful,” said St. Baldrick’s participant Alli McQueeny.

“So raising enough money as we can is important so we can help find a cure," said Chris McQueeney.

According to Kitty Hoynes St. Baldrick's page, they have exceeded this year's goal of raising $330,000.

The last we checked they've raised more than $415,000.
