Go Bald For A Brother, this year Brot(her) is an annual fundraising and awareness event that supports first responders battling cancer. This event started in honor of Poquonnock Bridge Firefighter Todd Williamson and is sponsored by his friends and the Eastern Connecticut Emerald Society.
This years honoree is Jaime Cowie from the #jaimestrong campaign. Jaime is a dispatcher for Connecicut's air medical program (Life Star) who is currently fighting her way through breast cancer.
As a show of strength and support, we get together to shave our heads (optional) in order to raise funds to assist each year's recipient with medical expenses and cost of living or being out of work.
