Public safety officials, , helped raise nearly $19,000 to help fund cancer research at Rady Children's Hospital.
Officer Jordan Good and firefighter David Pepsny had their heads shorn as part of “Be Brave and Shave,” an event which called on those who work for local public safety agencies to give up their hair for the cause.
Good brought in the most of any of the individuals in the fundraiser, more than $2,000.
Officers and firefighters from Carlsbad, San Diego, the San Diego County Sheriff's Department and local universities and fire districts participated in the event, at the Clairemont Sport Clips. Proceeds will benefit the hospital's Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders.
