Months ago, D.M.D. students Cassandra Dorsey and Telka Jackson made a commitment to raise money for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. They formed team “Bald for a Cause” and although they didn’t reach their $50,000, they did raise more money than any of the other 62 University of Florida teams, and they engaged faculty, staff and other students in their cause.
During the relay event on March 27, Telka, Cassandra, Cory Canavan, Dave Cardman and Shawn Willis (all are DMD students), and Dr. Marc Ottenga shaved their heads as part of the Bald for a Cause promise when different fundraising levels were reached.
Congratulations to everyone who played part in the success of Bald for A Cause and thank you for your time and efforts toward cancer research and treatment.
