Farmers Mutual Hail event raises over $48K for foundation, Blank Children’s Hospital


Seven volunteers “braved the shave” to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research at the 16th Annual St. Baldrick’s Head-Shaving Event hosted by Farmers Mutual Hail Insurance Co. of Iowa on July 20. The event, which was held outdoors and with limited attendance, raised $48,110 for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, an organization dedicated to supporting research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives. Blank Children’s Hospital is a St. Baldrick’s Foundation grant recipient. A portion of the funds raised at the event will support research grants at Blank Children’s Hospital. “St. Baldrick’s Foundation has helped change the lives of children fighting cancer around the world and right here in Iowa,” said Ron Rutledge, FMH president and CEO. “We’re proud to have raised over $1.35 million for this organization throughout these past 16 years, and we look forward to continuing to support the Foundation in the future.”
