The Gardner-Webb University baseball program teamed up with a special charity for a “basebald” event Saturday, Oct. 15, to fund research for childhood cancer and offer support for Levine Children’s Hospital (Charlotte, N.C.). Members of the Runnin’ Bulldogs 2016-17 team and coaching staff gathered at 5 p.m. at John Henry Moss Stadium to shave their heads in an effort to meet their fundraising goal of $5,000 for Vs. Cancer Foundation, based in Raleigh, N.C. “The Vs. Cancer Foundation has been a major force in the fight against childhood cancer and we are honored to partner with them in that battle,” said GWU Head Coach Rusty Stroupe, who was among the group that surrendered their hair on Saturday.
