More than 100 athletes from University of Minnesota football, volleyball, hockey and baseball, along with coaches and friends, came together Monday to cut their hair for a good cause. U wide receiver Connor Cosgrove, who is battling leukemia, came up with the idea and immediately got more than 60 of his teammates to commit to shaving their heads for the cause. The Gophers are partnering with St. Baldrick’s Foundation to raise money and awareness to help fund pediatric cancer research.
