EASTON, Pa. -

It's a hair-razing event that's for a very special cause.

Hundreds of people lined up to get their hair shaved for a special fund-raiser for the Saint Baldrick Foundation at Lafayette College Wednesday night.

The foundation raises money for pediatric cancer research.

Organizers say that every three minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer.

The group has shaved more than 300,000 heads since 2005.
