Bald at the Robin Hood

As St. Baldrick's day approaches, here's a story from Bermuda:
His wife’s fight with cancer has led one leading reinsurance executive to take it all off to raise funds for research benefiting children suffering from the disease.

Andrew Cook, chief financial officer for Bermuda-based AXIS Capital, is going bald on March 18 along with, so far, nine other locals taking part in the St. Baldrick’s fundraising event.

The popular head-shaving event - which dates back five years and has raised nearly $7 million by now - gets staged both here at the Robin Hood Pub and across the US every year.
It all started out when several US-based reinsurance executives came up with the idea to recruit 17 colleagues in an attempt to raise $17,000 to benefit children with cancer.
In case you missed it, there was a previous post about St. Baldrick's as well.
