How St. Baldrick’s Day started in North Dakota

Emily McKay is a creative soul.
And she also used to do my job (demonstration coordinator) at Basin Electric.
Five years ago–Emily was traveling the Midwest teaching students about electricity. While listening to the radio in the company vehicle during her long roadtrips, she first heard about St. Baldrick’s. She thought “I would shave my head to raise money for childhood cancer research.” She brought the idea to her husband, Ted Cash (who also works at Basin Electric) and he felt the same way. Then they told others at Basin Electric and the event started there.
Now, five years later, the event has grown to be called “North Dakota St. Baldrick’s.” Check out the video below to hear Emily’s story…who by the way is now the director of the Great Plains Energy Corridor at Bismarck State College. Way to go, Emily!
