Thomas Morstead to shave his head to raise awareness for kids cancer at St. Baldrick's Day

The event will take place on Saturday, March 22


Saints punter Thomas Morstead will cut his hair at St. Baldrick's Day at Finn McCool's Irish Pub (3701 Banks St., New Orleans) on Saturday, March 22 at 2:00 p.m. 

Last year, Morstead shaved his head, as well as donated his hair to Wigs for Kids as a part of his What You Give Will Grow initiative. Morstead decided to donate his hair prior to the Saints' 2011 training camp when he was at dinner with former Saint Steve Gleason and his wife, Michel. At the dinner, Michel said his hair had the same texture and thickness as Steve's – who had grown his hair out to make a donation several times. Following their conversation, Morstead, who hadn't cut his hair since 2010, made the decision to wait until the conclusion of the 2012 season to donate his hair to Wigs for Kids.

Finn McCool's will host St. Baldrick's Day for the fourth-straight year and has already raised over $71,000 for St. Baldricks, aiming to make a $100,000 donation to the organization. The St. Baldrick's Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity that funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government
