Georgetown's St. Baldrick's Day

Jenna Johnson

St. Patrick's Day got pretty crazy for about 75 Georgetown University School of Medicine students, faculty and staff members who celebrated by shaving their heads.

No, alcohol wasn't involved. The group decided to "brave a shave" to raise money for St. Baldrick's Foundation, a non-profit organization that raises money for childhood cancer research. To date, Georgetown students have raised $23,000 on behalf of pediatric cancer.

Even women joined in and lost their locks, including (pictured above) medical student Ayesha Rahman and medical education coordinator Judy Blooms. For more photos, check out the university's Facebook photo album.
