North Metro Fire along with firefighters from Louisville, Westminster, Pleasant View, Thornton and other neighboring agencies joined with community residents to raise close to $26,000 for childhood cancer research. Broomfield’s Paul Derda emceed the event as more than 70 participants of all ages stepped up to have their heads shaved by stylists from Appearances Hair Color and Design Studio and Super Cuts. The event was held at The Exchange Tavern owned by Teddi Davis, and entertainment was provided by Thornton Fire’s Pipes and Drums group as well as a local Irish dance troupe. Local families affected by childhood cancer also attended to share their stories, shave their heads and raise awareness about childhood cancer.
