Kate Douglas, president of APO, has organized the event for the past two years.

“Unfortunately, it’s really common,” Douglas said. “A child gets diagnosed every three minutes, so that’s a lot of kids and they don’t really have a lot of funding.”

Barbers will be on Monfort Quad, east of Clark,  from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 8 shaving heads and accepting donations.

Registration can be completed online.

“We love that people are willing to raise their heads, but we ask that you donate at least a little bit just because that’s why we’re out here, and all of it goes back to the foundation,” Douglas said.
