Fighting Childhood Cancer

St. Baldrick's Foundation Annual Fund Raising Event

Event Date: March 15, 2013
Location: Fado Irish Pub Atlanta, GA

Access Management employee Kent Atzinger has answered the call – yet again - to participate in this year’s St. Baldrick's Foundations annual fundraiser. In order to participate in the program, Kent will literally be shaving his head completely bald. 2013 marks the fifth year in a row that he will participate in this fundraising effort.

Kent says "I'm shaving my head to stand in solidarity with kids fighting cancer, but more importantly, to raise money to find cures. Please support me with a donation to the St. Baldrick's Foundation. This volunteer-driven charity funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U. S. government. Your gift will give hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers. So when I ask for your support, I'm really asking you to support these kids. Thank you!”

We hope you will join in and help Kent Atzinger to reach his commitment to St. Baldrick's Foundation. If you would like to make a donation, you can utilize the link below to visit the St. Baldrick website and Kent's individual page as well.

Program Results Summary
Kent is very proud of the fact that over the last four years, over $14,270 has been donated to this tremendous charity on his behalf - $1,830 in 2009, $2,728 in 2010, $3,820 in 2011, and $5,892 in 2012.  Kent says “I cannot tell you how happy it makes me to be fortunate enough to have such great people around me to support a cause that has become dear to my heart.  Your past and future contributions are incredibly appreciated.”

Kent’s 2013 Goal
This year Kent has agreed to raise at least $6,000 in donations. Kent hopes that he can reach this goal this goal due to the increased interest in participation. He believes that with your generosity, he can surpass his goal for the fifth straight year! You can find Kent’s shavee website by clicking on this link:

A Note from Kent
This year, instead of honoring a specific child on the St. Baldrick’s site, I have decided to go a different route.  For my fifth and final year, I am shaving my head to honor all of my friends and family members who have gone through (or are currently going through) the struggles of being close to a child with any kind of illness or disease.  I honor the strength of all of the children that are no longer with us - and those who fight every day to battle these illnesses.
I thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity. Any amount of money that you can donate will be going to a great cause and will be greatly appreciated by myself, and all those affected by children's cancer.
