VALHALLA, N.Y. -- Approximately 75 students joined Valhalla School District employees in shaving their heads to raise money for childhood cancer research.

Students, faculty and staff lined up at the Valhalla Firehouse to be shorn at the St. Baldrick's Foundation event. The Valhalla Fire Department gave tours and rides on their trucks and students attempted to soak their teachers in a dunk tank.

Kensico, Valhalla Middle and Valhalla High School boys walked around, readying themselves to be shorn.

Students donated $1 to St. Baldrick's and wore colors representing cancer on the last day of school before the event.

The event raised more than $20,000 for the foundation.
