Badgers to shave heads for cancer awareness

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Oct 1, 2013

Some Wisconsin Badgers football players including two star receivers are getting rid of the head on their hair, to help benefit kids battling cancer.

The Journal Sentinel's Jeff Potrykus says players including wide receiver Jared Abbrederis and tight end Jacob Pedersen are having patients from American Family Children's Hospital shave their heads to raise awareness for cancer research there.
