Mark Hegarty ’01

Mark Hegarty (left, holding son Timothy) emails, “My father, Timothy Hegarty (center), brother-in-law Steve Palenscar ’01 (right, holding daughter Mairin), and I are shown at a fundraising event, hosted every three years by our family, to support St. Baldrick’s Foundation. St. Baldrick’s began as a headshaving event, and ‘shavees’ ask friends and family to make donations ‘on their head,’ much like a charity walk. In return, shavees attend one of thousands of volunteer-organized events worldwide to have their heads shaved in solidarity with those fighting cancer. We joined 10 other shavees in March and raised almost $50,000 for pediatric cancer research.”
