LONG BEACH, CALIF. -- Cubberly Elementary students Alo Rosales-McEnroe, left, clutches his pony tail as he stands with his father, Cuauhtemoc Rosales, and sister, Nikki Rosales-McEnroe, before getting his head shaved during the school's St. Baldrick's event Friday, March 26, 2010, in Long Beach, Calif. Rosales-McEnroe chopped off a 10 inch pony-tail before submitting to the shaver. He said the last time her cut his hair was six years ago. Last year the cancer came back in her lungs. About 160 participants, mostly students, raised over $30,000 for the foundation. The St. Baldrick's Foundation encourages people to shave their heads to show solidarity with children who have cancer. The money goes to fund cancer research.
