Father-Son Duo Fight Children’s Cancer

OneBeacon Technology’s Eric Rush and his son Nicholas got ready to beat the summer heat by shaving their heads for a cause. For the second consecutive year, the father-son duo participated in a St. Baldrick’s Foundation fundraising event to support children’s cancer research. Eleven-year-old Nicholas first began participating in the event three years ago, when his friend was diagnosed with leukemia. “Because children with cancer often lose their hair during treatment, this is a way for their supporters to stand proudly bald beside them,” said Eric, an Underwriting Consultant based in Illinois.

With support from the OneBeacon Charitable Trust, the pair raised $2,715 for St. Baldrick’s.  In total, the event raised over $15,000 for children’s cancer research.
