“Breaking Bald” fundraiser generates over $55,000 in employee donations
Eleven RBC employee volunteers + more than $55,000 in donations + several pairs of clippers = one big donation to support cancer research.
As part of a firm-wide fundraiser called "Really Battling Cancer; Breaking Bald" on Monday, August 3, 2015, eleven RBC WM-U.S. employees shaved their heads to help raise money for the University of Minnesota Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund. Complex directors Dan Ball, Warren Bischoff, Jeb Bundock, Wally Chapman, Mike Crowell, and Rob Spawn organized the fundraiser as a way to help RBC WM-U.S. employees show their support in a tangible way, either through donations or by shaving their head.
To date, RBC employees have helped raise more than $55,000 for pancreatic cancer research. In addition to the fundraiser, the RBC Foundation – USA is making a separate gift to support the important work of the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund.
