Members of the University of Notre Dame community participated in ""The Bald and the Beautiful":" fundraiser April 17-19, 2013. The annual event started in 2008 after freshman Sam Marx lost his battle with cancer. The yearly event is organized by students to fight pediatric cancer locally and nationally. Since its beginning, the effort has raised more than $150,000 for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation and for Memorial Hospital of South Bend, and more than 400 hair donations have been made to Pantene Beautiful Lengths.
