Badgers shave heads to support children with cancer

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Several children had a night to remember at Camp Randall Stadium. In their annual "Badgers Go Bald" event, the Wisconsin athletic department invited children who are currently fighting cancer at the American Family Children's Hospital, and their families. to Camp Randall Stadium. Several UW student-athletes joined the children as they toured the football locker rooms and the playing field. Then the athletes allowed the kids to shave their heads, showing the children support through their fight.

"Being bald is beautiful. I feel faster now and feel the wind between my ears now. It's about the kids, trying to pick them up and in return they actually pick me up," Badgers quarterback Bart Houston said after getting his head shaved.

"I can't imagine being in the situation some of these kids are in. Hopefully they enjoy this event as much as I have," Badgers long-snapped Connor Udelhoven said.

"Seeing all the players selflessly shave their heads and show their support, it means a lot," Michelle Wolfe said, whose son is fighting cancer.
