Police officers from Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach and Torrance are being challenged to go bald for a good cause this month.
For every officer who shaves his head, the Redondo Beach Police Officers Association and the Manhattan Beach-based SPIDR Tech company will make a donation toward childhood cancer research via St. Baldrick's Foundation. Additional funds will go to the family of 11-year-old Cait Naylor, a local resident who is undergoing cancer therapy.
The Vincent Annex police of Redondo Beach hosts the head shaving event on Saturday, Jan. 18, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the station at 200 Pacific Coast Hwy. Members of the community also can contribute by going to “Redondo Beach Police Defying Kids Cancer” on the internet or using the link, https://www.stbaldricks.org/events/mypage/13851/2020.
