CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio -- There's a group of people today going bald for a special young man: FOX 8's Autumn Ziemba's son, Simon.
They'll join more than 200 others who are shaving their heads for the St. Baldrick's Foundation, benefiting Childhood Cancer Research. The event runs from 1 p.m.-4 p.m. at the Cleveland Heights Community Center on Monticello Boulevard.
Two-year-old Simon was diagnosed b-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in December. He's been in remission, but continues to receive treatment.
Organizers for today's event are hoping to raise $125,000. As of 12:45 p.m., participants had already generated more than $129,000.
