HAMDEN, Conn. – The Quinnipiac University men's ice hockey team has once again partnered with St. Baldrick's to host a head-shaving to raise money to benefit children's cancer research. The event will take place on Sunday, Oct. 14 following the Bobcats' game against Robert Morris at 12 p.m. at High Point Solutions Arena at the TD Bank Sports Center in Hamden, Conn.
"We had a great event in 2008 and raised a lot of money for a great cause," Pecknold said. "It exceeded all of my expectations, and I hope we can do it again. I know that Quinnipiac's student-athletes and staff are dedicated enough to put the work in and are fans are always supportive. I'm confident in another successful benefit for a great cause."
St. Baldrick's is a charity which funds research to help find cures for children with cancer. Quinnipiac previously participated in the event, coined "Blades and Shaves" on Oct. 4, 2008. Head Coach Rand Pecknold was one of 47 individuals, that also included Quinnipiac's student-athletes, staff and fans, involved in the fundraiser, which generated close to $30,000 for St. Baldrick's.
