10-year-old girl helps make a difference at St. Baldrick's Fundraiser

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - 131,000 dollars were raised for St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

The money is used to raise funds and awareness to cure kid's cancer.

With the recent snow fall most ten year olds would be excited to go sledding, Jaylen Haluska was excited for an entirely different reason on Sunday.

"I'm raising money for Saint Baldrick's," Haluska said. "I'm happy."

Instead of making a snowman, she made a statement with a new hairstyle.

And she's following in her families footsteps

"My big sister Mackenzie, my aunt Michelle and my cousin Hunter did this two years ago," said Haluska.

Jaylen wasn't the only one joining the fight against childhood cancer.

More than 100 volunteers shaved their heads at the annual St. Baldrick's Foundation Head-shaving Event.

"I love it," Volunteer Nicole Hoida said. "It's heart warming and you feel good doing it."

"I have friends now who have kids that have been diagnosed with cancer and you want to do everything in your power to make them feel like there as normal as anyone else," Volunteer Jennifer Fay said.

Haluska raised over 300 dollars for Sunday's event.

"I'm surprised," said Haluska. "I thought i was at-least going to raise 100."
