LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The block was covered in locks at Fourth Street Live!

More than 100 men and women cut their hair for Saint Baldrick's.

The event is the world's largest volunteer-driven fundraising event for childhood cancer research.

Those who donated their hair said they won't miss a strand.

Participant Jessicah Weeks explained, "If everybody pitches in a dollar, two dollars to get the research done babies don't have to die, they don't have to go through the horrible treatments and they can get better."

WAVE 3's own Dawne Gee hosted the event.
