LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Several people showed up at a high school and shaved their heads in hopes of finding a cure to childhood cancer Wednesday.

The president of the DeSales High School Key Club, Joey Gardner, organized the shaving event for St. Baldrick's and dozens signed up to lose their locks.

Gardner, who was touched by two friends who battled leukemia, said this is the 7th year he shaved his head and the 3rd year of organizing the event.
