'Badgers Go Bald' for a good cause

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -

Several Badgers football players shed their hair for a worthy cause. The second 'Badgers Go Bald' event raised awareness for childhood cancer.

Childhood cancer patients from the American Family Children's Hospital shaved the heads of several Badgers football players including Vince Biegel, Joe Schobert and Michael Caputo. Some of the patients also got to enjoy a free pizza party and a tour of Camp Randall Stadium. The players are hoping the event raises awareness to the battle that these childhood patients go through every day at the children's hospital, according to Caputo.

"I love working with the kids at the children's hospital. Outside of school and football, it's one of the things the team really takes pride in, being able to put a smile on the kids' faces. This event is just a fun way to help the children's hospital and we're looking forward to it. I've wanted to do it ever since I saw the impact it had on the kids last year."
