2017-2018 Top Ten Schools: #5 – Amherst Middle School

This week, our #5 top fundraising school for 2017-2018 is Amherst Middle School!

Amherst Middle School has been Goin’ Bald for 4 years and has raised more than $77,000 for Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center! Each year, Amherst Middle School shows up for the fight against cancer and this year was no exception.  In 2018, Amherst Middle School raised more than $25,000!

This school’s success is thanks to teacher coordinator, Mr. Mansfield who dedicates the entire spring to planning for the big shave.

Amherst Middle School does more than collect online donations. The school has multiple fundraisers throughout the year leading up to the event and also hosted a fundraiser at Panera Bread to bring in extra bucks.

During the actual event, students test their knowledge with Bald for Bucks trivia and the school plays an inspiring and unique video featuring all of the participants and why they Go Bald.

More than 50 students, faculty and staff snipped and clipped their way to cancer cures. We can’t wait to see what Amherst Middle School does to surprise us next year!
