JHL Raises over $30,500 for St. Baldrick's Foundation
On March 31, 2018, JHL Constructors hosted its inaugural St. Baldrick’s Foundation fundraising event at Max Taps in Highlands Ranch. The event raised over $30,500 for childhood cancer research. Over 20 JHL employees, friends, and family members took part in raising funds and shaving their heads. JHL has been a supporter of St. Baldrick's Foundation for five years and will continue to host an event each year. Less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget is solely dedicated to childhood cancer research. St. Baldrick’s Foundation exists to fill that gap to fund the research making the greatest impact for children with cancer. Check out their website for more info: www.stbaldricks.org.
