Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- Many people in the community are making bald beautiful and it's all for a great cause.
"It does give you hope that things will get better," said Robert Allmann who shaved his head for St. Baldrick's.
The Columbia community came out to Jillian's to cut down childhood cancer by shaving their heads.
"I have lost a lot of family members to cancer and a lot of my friends have had children who have cancer and so it's really meaningful to me to not have hair in solidarity with them," said Rachal Hatton.
The goal of St. Baldrick's is to raise money with a team and then go bald. The Columbia Police Department's team made big money with one little kid.
"My son raised the most money out of everybody at $355," Sgt. Robert Allmann II said.
Allman, his son and his father all took the plunge and shaved their heads. Allman's father is a cancer survivor.
"First of all family support is great, community support is great, when you have that support group it makes it easier to go through it," said Allmann Sr.
And Gregory Gable who teamed up with the Richland County Sheriff's Department showed his commitment to the cause.
"Kids that lose their hair is a traumatic thing so this is my small part of giving back," Gable said.
"We're bringing together people who aren't members of the Sheriff's Department to want to be with us to support us in a cause that we're trying to support others," Deputy Joshua Woodley said.
With hair on the ground and money pouring in, supporters are hoping that this helps find a solution.
"If we can find a cure for kid's cancer, possibly that will be the kid that finds a cure for another type of cancer in adults," Sgt. Allmann said.
Over 200 people shaved their head and raised over $70,000. This is the 7th saint Baldrick's fundraiser at Jillian's.
