Men's Basketball Team Supports Saint Baldrick's Day
Jito Kok shaved head to help raise awareness for childhood cancer

April 24, 2014

(San Diego, Calif.) - Members of the USD mens' basketball team were on campus Thursday afternoon to help support the Saint Baldrick's Day event organized by student Marissa Rangel to raise awareness and money for childhood cancer. The event was held to raise money not only by donations, but by an event where people have the opportunity to shave their head or cut their hair (and raise money that way) in solidarity with children that are losing their hair because of chemotherapy.

Torero sophomore center Jito Kok took part in the shaving event that was held at lunch time just outside of Aroma's. "Hair is really nothing if you compare it to a good cause like this," said Jito Kok who had his head shaved. "I'm glad I got to help out with this. It was a lot of fun and I'm glad the team was here to help support this cause." The entire team signed three basketball balls that will be given to kids currently battling cancer and going through chemotherapy.

The St. Baldrick's Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long, healthy lives. To learn more about the St. Baldrick's Foundation, go to: StBaldricks
