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,
