MEDINA – Clifford Wise Middle School student Ayden Amrhein set a goal of $800 for cancer research in Roswell’s Goin’ Bald for Bucks campaign.

After sharing his story about how his aunt’s battle with thyroid cancer inspired him, Ayden reached out to his classmates and the community to help him reach his goal. He was thrilled to go well beyond his goal – raising $2,180 for the charity.

Ayden headed to Shear Elegance in Medina on May 27 to meet his end of the bargain and get his head shaved.

“We are very proud of him,” says Principal Elaine Wendt.
